How much did he take from you? is the amount is significant? One time my friend take some money from me without asking, but the amount is not much, it just for paying a parking ticket and even it can be categorize as stealing, i wouldn't break my friendship with him, i just like to tease him of being a thief sometimes but in a joking manner. But if you feel that the amount of money is significant and you feel bother with his/her behaviour then you should stop being his/her friend.

No, he didn't any money take from me but from friend of mine. She claimed her wallet was stolen by someone and there was an ATM card and with a pin number inside it. Someone was accused of stealing her wallet who was closed to her at the night her wallet was being stolen. The thief cashed the money out from her ATM card and ran away without a trace. She said her money that had been taken about 500.000 thousand rupiah Indonesia and the amount is a lot for us as Indonesian, because the amount nearly 40 percent of our monthly payment here Indonesia. She did reporting her lost and we are on the wait to know who someone behind her wallet stealing. Just Curious.

I would cut off the friendship. I would never be able to trust that person again, and I wouldn't want to allow them around my family or home. If they can betray you that horribly, then I wouldn't ever trust them again. How can you remain friends with someone who doesn't even think of how their actions could effect you? That's your hard earned money, and I think you should cut off the friendship.
