    Answered . You should consult with an experienced criminal defense as soon as possible. Do not talk to anyone one from the store and do not talk to the police. Do not talk to anyone until you consult with an attorney.

    Answered . I agree with the other attorney's response. You need to hire legal counsel immediately and aggressively defend yourself. You may want to have a polygraph performed because the FBI will surely have you do one.
