The OP should get a little more aggressive with Mom and contact the police to report she stole things and admitted to it, press charges maybe this will put a halt to her foolishness.

About a month ago, the apartment below mine was part of a crime scene, and the police asked the people in the nearby units if they would leave for 2 weeks so that it wouldn't be compromised and could be cleaned, so I asked my parents if I could stay. They said yes, as longnas I didn't bring Aurora, my dog. (I didn't.) Anyway, one afternoon, about four days in, I left my phone on my dresser while I changed clothes, and laptop in my closed backpack in on my bed, in my room. After I changed, I noticed my phone was gone, but I couldn't do anything then, I was almost late to pick up the kids I nanny for, and I went to work. (Both items were completely purchased by me after I moved out) When I got home, the bag was open, and the laptop was now gone as well. When I asked my mom, she told me she had taken them, and when I asked her why, she said I abused them. (To be clear, I'm a senior in college, and go to class from 7am to 2:30 pm. I then have 30 minutes to put my things away and change before I have to be at work from 3:00 pm to 9. I usually have about 3-3 1/2 hours of homework a night, which I do after I get home.) She said I spent too much time using them, and wouldn't listen when I tried to explain that I have to always have my phone with me in case something came up with the children (it's happened before!) and only use my laptop for homework. After the two weeks, I went back to my apartment, but she still won't give me my things back, and now she's staying with me for two days and yesterday, I answered the door and a lady was there saying my mom had sold my dog (whom I bought) to her! I told her the dog wasn't for sale and she said she was going to go to the police! Can the police take my dog? Does my mother have any legal rights to my laptop and phone? Or my dog?
Call the cops and cut off contact with her unless she gets professional help. That's unacceptable and thre is something wrong with her.. She should be glad you're standing on your own two feet.

Not if the family member treats you like a dog. Give me the dog any day.

No it's not, the dog is family too. She gets unconditional love from the dog, a companion that will always be there for her. Mom is a twit.

My dog is my family and is more than just a "dog" to me. if a mom would do that to her daughter, she doesn't sound like a very nice person!

Is your mother gambling or using drugs? Maybe she's selling your stuff for cash instead of punishment, but is telling you it's "your fault" because she doesn't want to admit she's stealing.

I think she just wants money for her drugs/gambling. Either way, kick her out and give her a deadline to give you your stuff back before you call the cops and have her arrested.

She is a college student.

Many(if not most) university libraries are open 24 hours a day so that students can study or do research whenever they need to do so.

College students often experience insomnia at odd times - what better way to use those periods of sleeplessness in the pre-dawn hours then spending time in the library?
