morning i gave a statement last week to the police on one of my ex friends whom had been txting me regards ***** ***** a small safe box from a bank .he said me and you could benefit from this so it would give us an cash injection in our buisness . i said you should not think like so because we got family and kids, its not worth it .i said just keep your head down , work away and sooner or later things will get better .i had a break in , at my shop and lost a few thousand pounds worth of ciggerates 3 months ago . things have been hard this year for small businesses , but im not the only one . .i wasnt insured at that time and got nothing back . it was my ex friend started sending me pictures of the bank how to rob it and pictures of the bank inside .i started getting uncomfortable with all this . i come from a very well known family in edinburgh , it would be embarising in front of every one , for me and my family . now i feel i have done the wrong thing . i havent eaten much this weekend and feel sick once i have . im just worried now . my ex friend has started to tell other people out there that im a grass . i dont want involved in this robbery or whatever . i dont want any messages sent to me relating to an robbery of a bank. it gets worse , i got a car on finance for this ex friend , because he didnt pass on finance last year . we also have a disagreement on this too . the car was about £6000 pounds. dont know what to do now . just need some advice .police said it is a civil matter and they cant help. i think i have made things harder for myself to get the car back now . after letting the police know of the planning of this robbery . can you give some advice plz.
i firstly informed my bank manager and then he informed the police regards ***** ***** matter .i asked the cid to let me know before they went ahead to question my ex friend , so we could make an aliby before hand . something like that i get arrested as well and make it look like as i was stuck in this too . rather than making my self look like an informant. car was meant to be used for his wife back and forward everyday use . not for him to use it for cash and carry and shop and traveling to work in glasgow and back , 5 days a week . alot of mileage is adding up too, and the exesive wear n tear weekly
there is an another witness whom is my friend . and aware of all this too . police wish to speak to him today .mobile fones had been taken for proof of images and txt , but have now been returned . this friend of mines had been asked to get involved in this robbery too . is it better if he says nothing to police . i can ask him to say hes not getting involved in this matter . which means not two witnesses.
i shall leave a positive reading friend thanks
one more thing , if my friend doesnt say anything then it leaves me in talking terms with my ex friend , and maybe easily get the car back in normal mannerly ways , than it costing me money through the courts . im broke after the break in at my shop . he will smash and trash my car in side other wise . the car would be worth less then . thanks
thats correct . he didnt want anything to do with it either . only i recieved these messages , im trying to keep him out of bounds and trouble , hes a good lad and got a good heart . hes been in trouble before and can be easily lead on . just worried for him too :( . police want to speak to him because i brought him in this . i told the police he was a witness that he was approached by my ex friend . as he is easily lead . young but learning fast .
if he says he doesnt know anything , then me or my friend arent commiting a crime , are we ?then my ex friend wont suspect anything either .
