If I gave my sub-tenant a 30 day notice to vacate and he left but hasn’t been back for a few days, do I have to store his stuff in the room for 30 days too?

Hopefully you gave notice properly under the lease and under the law in your state.  Now, once proper notice has been given you can do nothing until the 30 days expires.  And if it expires and he does not leave, you then have to legally evict him before you can ask for an order allowing you to allow the sheriff or marshall to put his stuff out on the street.  Otherwise he can come after you.  Get help.  Good luck.
