What do I do if a detective is trying to contact me about my lost ipod touch?

Asked over 1 year ago - Denver, CO

The detective contacted my mother saying that they wanted to talk to me concerning that they didn't just find my ipod. And that my mother could come down with me to question me.

    Answered . Your question is unclear. If you made a police report regarding a lost or stolen item and the police contacted you to tell you that they recovered it, then you should be able to go down and retrieve your property. If you believe there is any chance that the detective believes that you might have comitted a crime, then you need to refuse to be interviewed and immediately hire a criminal defense attorney.

    Answered . I agree with the other two attorneys' answers here. If there is even the slightest chance that you had anything on that ipod which you did not purchase, or photos of anything that you shouldn't have had, then either (1) DO NOT TALK TO THE POLICE, or (2) BRING AN EXPERIENCED CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY WITH YOU.

    Don't try to outsmart the police, anything you say to them can hurt your defense if they decide to charge you with a crime.
