The past simple

Hi. Can I use the past simple for older news without a specific time? For example I'd like to inform about an action, which occurred some time ago (a few days ago or a week ago). My listener knows the time of the action, even though I didn't mention anything. I also have this time in my mind and I don't want to add the time to my utterance. Will the past simple work in this situation?
Thanks

    I smashed your phone and stole your money. (Both of us know the time of the action and it happened 5 days ago.)
