"Shouldn’t a person be arrested for going through my trash?"

Question: I am involved in a civil lawsuit. It’s been going on for almost a year. Recently I realized that someone is going through my trash. I think that they are looking for some sort of evidence that would make a difference in the lawsuit. When I tie up my trash and place it in the dumpster behind my house and someone goes into the dumpster to retrieve just my tied up trash, shouldn’t that person be arrested for going through my trash? I thought that was an invasion of my privacy.
