Can I press charges against my neighbor who I think is stealing from me?

We had some new neighbors move next door to us last month. Since they came slowly things have been missing from our backyard. It is the kind of house you can't see the backyard from the sidewalk but you can see each others yards if you're in either backyard. It is also pretty easy to hop the fence between the yards. I don't have 100% proof but I feel really sure. I saw one of the toys my son is missing in their yard and asked them about it but they just said their kid has the same toy. I'm calling BS. What is the best thing to do?

    You really need proof. Label/mark your things to identify as yours. Then you will know if you see something of yours in their yard whether it is yours.
