    Whether the police will consider taking on the case will depend on what has been stolen (and what evidence there is as to the culprit).

    However, for you to be prosecuted for burglary, as well as access to the premises not having been permitted, they will have to demonstrate that either you were present with the plumber and either took the property, or had a reasonable expectation that something would be stolen, or you would have had to conspire with the plumber.

    There don't seem to be allegations of harassment or illegal eviction, and simply entering without intending one of those or to commit another crime, would be a civil matter.

    I assume you made the usual checks on the plumber (insurance and health and safety) and didn't just ring a mobile phone number found on a lamp post. However that is about your degree of civil liability, not your criminal responsibility.

    Police won't be interested in my opinion

    Ask him for the crime reference number that he got from the police when he reported the theft (obviously he reported it before contacting you).
