I would definitely file a police report, especially if they start using your cards. It can’t hurt, that’s for sure. Better to be safe than sorry! And I believe you can do it right over the phone, just call your local police department

@MrsSl82be: Agreed. 

This happened to me in Boston and I filed right over the phone, it took like 10 minutes.  I didn’t think I would really get anything back, but since my I.D. was in there if anything shady happened and they tried to use it later I wanted it on file with the police that it was stolen.  You just never know.

Yes!!! This just happened to me and I was told to file a police report because of identity theft. I called the non emergency # and they had someone who specifically deals with those types of calls.

Someone ended up turning it in to the police dept a couple of hours later and the police actually brought it right to my front door!

Go call now!!!

Did you have your SSN on your driver’s license?  If so, definently report it.
