Spanish term or phrase: denunciar + all its components
English appears to lack a consistent term for:
denunciar, denuncia (document, declaration), denunciante (person). The context is generally for minor and petty crimes (theft of food, small amounts of money; thefts of what in fact are vehicles of little market value; etc)

denunciar - to report, to accuse, to arraign, to proclaim, to denounce.

denuncia - report, announcement, advice, notice, accusation, denouncement

denunciable - that may be terminated or denounced

denunciación - denunciation, denouncement

denunciador - denouncer, one who makes a report.

Hope this helps! These are the terms according the "Diccionario de Términos Legales" Robb.

information, accusation, allegation, complaint, report, exposure


Explanation:
In this case, it seems that it would probably be better to use allegation or accusation since it seems to be a criminal case. In the US courts, it is the prosecutor who makes the accusation or allegation of the crime. In police reports used to try alleged defendants, the term alledgely is used.
