I was just contact by a detective saying they are working on a case and told me to come in for a interview, can they arrest me or lock me up after the interview? What are my rights?
You have the right to remain silent. You should not meet with the detectives without an attorney. They can arrest you if they have evidence of a crime. You need to speak with an attorney as soon as possible.

They can certainly arrest you. Do not talk to detectives without an attorney. Contact one immediately.
You can be arrested at any time the police have 'probable cause' to believe that you committed a crime. Depending on the nature of the crime, they may have to get a warrant issued by a judicial officer. You have the right not to speak to them, to speak to them only with an attorney, or, to stop the questioning once it has started.
