Dear Abby: Sis is ready to turn in brother for criminal activity

DEAR ABBY: My brother is older than I am and has been in and out of prison. He has stolen my things and pawned them. I am now receiving phone calls at 4 o’clock in the morning from collection agencies on the hunt for my brother. Honestly, I am fed up with this “blood is thicker than water” mentality when it comes to my brother’s wrongdoings. He is now including my family in his schemes, and I won’t stand for it any longer. What should I do?
