Feuding With My Cousin

Group Therapy: My Family Won't Stop Harassing Me

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community.

My cousin and I had a big falling out about a month and a half ago due to her lying, stealing, cheating, and manipulating. I ended up telling her not to contact me until she can admit she robbed me (yes she robbed me) and she's had at least six months of therapy. I don't have solid proof of the robbery (stolen out of my car and, of course, her prints are all over it), but she also stole my debit card pin number and texted it to a mutual friend, who told me in time for me to cancel my card. This friend has the text still but neither of us wants to get the cops involved; but if we did, cousin is already on probation for felony credit card theft so she'd go away for a long time.

My cousin has been harassing me, demanding that I meet her to return a pair of $10 Walmart leggings that she left in my car six months ago. She also claims to be pregnant which I'm sure is a lie. I'm afraid she's trying to set me up and I've been ignoring her, but she shows no signs of stopping. I blocked her on Facebook, but she still calls and texts me almost daily. I loaned her my favorite gold and green bikini and never got it back. I was thinking of going to the police station and showing them the texts and saying that I'll trade the pants for the bikini at the station, and that I don't want to press phone harassment charges but I want her to leave me alone.

Should I give it more time? My side of the family isn't close to her side and all of our mutual friends have cut ties with her for the same reason I did, so going through someone isn't an option. And I know someone is going to say "kiss that gold and green bikini goodbye," but I look sexy as hell in it and I don't swim in chlorine so I've had it for years and it's not faded and I really miss it.
