Renter quit lease and hasn't paid past due

I have a rental unit that I lease on 30day to 90day basis. I had a tenant who signed a 90 lease and left halfway through. Prior to this tenant leaving he wrote me a check for $4710 to cover all his past due rent up to that point. His check was returned for non sufficient funds. He says his wife used that account when she shouldn't have and that's the reason the check was returned. I did call his bank when I received his check to verify the check was good and they said it was. Can I get the police involved to help recover the past due amount? What should I do legally? This tenant is trying to make good but as of today he still hasn't paid, I don't want this to linger on for a long period of time.

Thanks
