Hi alex

I received a note through my door asking me to contact the police, I did so and the officer asked for me to come in for a voluntary interview in relation to theft. I agreed to be cooperative.

The police station is 120 miles away from my home address.

Seeing as though it is so far away I wondered whether being kept at the station could be a possibility as this reflects how I will get to the station and whether I will go alone.

If I admit guilt could I be charged held and sentenced the following day?

Was it local to where the theft took place?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes, the officer said theft but I'm assuming that will turn into theft from employer and this would be a station local to the head office

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Then sadly yes you have to go there. This is because any offence has been reported there.
Can you be arrested if you admit it - yes. But they are more likely to caution you or if they do charge you release you to attend Court on a later date.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Thank you very much Alex. I'm going to request legal advice when I get to the station tomorrow as well. I just didn't want them to hold me 24 hours etc and find I was up in court Friday.

I'm basically being accused of taking money from parking meters that I emptied. It's my word against the company's that the money actually went back to the head office. The police have I assume been investigating this since I lost my employment in early March.
