OK a detective called me on Thursday at work and left a message on my work phone. I live in Washington State. He says "Hi Ethan this is Detective so-so from the so-and-so County Sheriffs Department. Can you give me a call when you get a chance? Thank you"
I have a previous felony in computer related crimes, but that was 6 years ago. I was arrested by the FBI, not the County or State. I think the reason a County cop is calling me is because I live in a city that doesn't have detectives of it's own, so it relies on the County cops for help. Why did he call my work phone and not my cell phone? Why didn't he come to my house and just knock on the door and maybe leave his card?
Anway, I'm scared and I don't want to talk to any cops. But I'm also affraid that if I call him he's going to want me to come down and do an "interview" and then he'll try to hassle me about stuff (which I don't need right now, my wife is 8 months pregnant). I also don't want him calling or coming to my workplace.
What should I do??? Not call him back?? Get a lawyer?? Ignore it???
