My family owns a small car repair facility in Maryland. One of the mechanics decided to take all repair order forms that include customer contact information. Police was called and we were told that they can not do anything about it because it is a civil matter. After doing some research I found Md. LABOR AND EMPLOYMENT Code Ann. § 5-217 (2013). Does that protect us against such acts? Are we able to get the customer information back from him and how do we go about doing so?

There are several claims you have against this person, including monetary damages and equitable damages to force a return of the documents. You should not do this on your own. Get the advice of an attorney who you can consult with regarding all of your claims before filing anything in court. Simply because you consult with an attorney does not mean you have to retain counsel for the matter.
I have handled similar matters for businessesm and I'm available for a consultation in this matter.
