My fiance was home with our two kids last night when an Epsom, NH police officer stopped by to leave a message for me as I still hadn't made it home from work yet. A detective from Londonderry, NH wants to speak with me and I literally have no idea why. I do work in Londonderry, NH as a store manager for a self storage facility. I have no idea what he could want which is making me nervous and on edge with my anxiety. I left a message on his voicemail asking to call me back. 12 hours later still no call back. I literally have no clue what he is looking to speak about as the Epsom police officer told my fiance that he was just there to give me a message that a detective simply wanted to speak with me. I feel like I need some legal guidance on how to handle this properly if he calls me back.
There could be a variety of reasons why he would want to talk to you. Only you would know best. Perhaps you witnessed a collision or crime. Perhaps they are trying to corroborate information someone else gave them. Perhaps you have committed a crime and they want to interrogate you about that. If you have any suspicion it is the latter, I strongly urge you to talk to an attorney before contacting the detective. Good luck.
Yes, nerve-racking indeed. Maybe a theft or shoplifting occurred at the Londonderry store where you work. Maybe you are a witness to a crime or have information relative to an investigation that doesn't directly pertain to you. However, assuming your a suspect in a crime, remember that whatever you say to law enforcement can and often will be used against you at a later time A lawyer can certainly call the police department on your behalf to find out exactly what the issue is.
