When a tenant leaves their belongings behind how long do they have to claim them?

I had a roommate who refused to pay half the bills (rent, power, cable). I then gave her a paper saying before she moves out she will also have to repair the holes she left in the wall. She moved out on the 17th and grabbed most of her cloths. On the 18th she came back and took the rest of her belongings, but like everyone does left a handful of things behind. Now 2 days later she is saying that I stole them.
