First, you should NOT be talking in this much detail on a public forum. Second, you should NEVER speak to law enforcement without an attorney present. It's your Constitutional right not to. You should consult an experienced criminal defense attorney in your local who will assist you in this matter.Ask a similar question
You simply tell the detective "Thanks but no thanks". You do not talk to them under ANY circumstances. By the time they are done with you, you will be admitting that you're Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. The cops will lie to you, tell you they have evidence which they don't have and do everything in their power to get you to confess, short of beating a confession out of you. There is no way you are going to help yourself. The cops are trained to extract confessions and they are good at it. If you talk to them you will regret it - trust me. Instead, find a lawyer on AVVO that offers a free consultation and talk to them instead.

You should refrain from making any further statements to law enforcement. Instead, the best course of action is to hire a defense attorney to deal with the authorities. That way you can ensure law enforcement gets the information they may need to clear you without worrying about anything you say later being twisted around and used against you. Most defense attorneys in San Diego County provide free consultations, so you shouldn't hesitate to call and learn more about what can be done on yuour behalf.

Even in your case -- when you have not been arrested and they have not told you that you are a "suspect" -- you should politely decline their questions, as it is your constitutional right to do so. If you feel that you must talk to them, bring an attorney. If you cannot get an attorney before the interview, postpone the interview until you can get an attorney.
