The time given to collect the items would have been set by the police, although he has not collected them, do not remove them. If you do and they are damaged or lost you can be held liable. It would be better to box everything thing up and store in a box. Then let the police officer dealing with your case know what you have done. Even if the time period was set by the court, you still have no authority to remove or destroy the items, as tempting as it may be. It could be that due to covid19 he could not get to collect them. So the police may be able to assist.
Full trial? As there has been several court hearings already, a trial date is just that. It is when the whole case is dealt with by the court. Witnesses are called to give evidence, he will give evidence then the magistrates will decide if guilty or not and if so, sentence him.
You could ask the officers to take the items so he can pick them up, from the police station, they may do that.
Yes, when the trial takes place, then you would be a witness for the prosecution because you are the victim. You would need to give evidence in court for the prosecution and also be cross examined by the lawyers for the defence.
