I apologise for any unavoidable delay, but rest assured I have not forgotten your question.
Whilst you may owe arrears of rent, the landlord cannot simply come and help himself. It’s theft. It is a matter for the police. I would suggest that you went to the local police station and reported everything that had been taken. Don’t be at all surprised if they say that it’s a civil matter. You will need to press the police because saying it’s a civil matter is a default answer when they can’t be bothered doing something or it requires work!
There is a process for the landlord’s to seize goods to pay for unpaid rent but there needs to be a loss of rent owing and there is a process which the landlord has to follow as you will read here: https://www.rocketlawyer.com/gb/en/quick-guides/commercial-rent-arrears-recovery-crar#:~:text=Commercial%20Rent%20Arrears%20Recovery%20(CRAR)%20is%20a%20statutory%20procedure%20which,tenant's%20goods%20and%20selling%20them.
