Would Dumbledore do this?
I have a question about how Dumbledore would act in a specific situation I'm writing about.
Situation: A major player in the story (say, one of the Order) has had their memory modified by someone with connections high up in the Ministry. Dumbledore needs to recover this person's memory, but in order to safely do so, he needs the wand that was used to cast the Memory Charm. (This isn't canon as far as I know, but I needed a way for him to counter the Memory Charm without destroying the person's brain a la Voldemort and Bertha Jorkins.) He has evidence that the Memory Charm was illegally performed and he knows who did it, but powerful friends in the Ministry refuse to let a trial go forward.
Question: Would Dumbledore resort to stealing the person's wand, rather than wait what might be a very long time for a trial to take place? I realize he probably wouldn't personally break into someone's house and steal their wand, but what if he asked somebody like Mundungus to do it for him, and then had him return it when he was finished (in the middle of the night, of course, so the person would have no idea it had even gone missing)?
I realize this is a pretty involved question, but any opinions would be greatly appreciated.
