Tenant who leaves and steals all items on the inventory

My tenant has moved out of his furnished house (current lease expires on 25 April) and taken the whole contents of the house ie all furniture, white goods and fixtures and fittings (my possessions) with him. This is obviously theft but what action can I take?

Also he signed a new fixed term lease for 12 months to commence 26 April but advised me a couple of weeks ago by text that he could not afford to stay on and was leaving at the end of the current lease. Am I able to claim his deposit currently with a Deposit Protection Scheme?

Please advise.

thank you.
