Hard to say what the police will/would/did do.

Several thousand dollars worth of items stolen. Plus apparently targeting identity theft. This could be part of a pretty serious crime spree.

But, "prints" may be tracked, but DNA may not be tracked for non-violent crimes. Gloves? Still, if any butts were left... they should be collected by the police.

I'm glad to hear that nobody was physically hurt. It sounds like you may have just missed the thief.

Leaving the house and calling you was probably appropriate. But your wife should have also called the police once she determined something was wrong and was afraid to enter the house herself.
