Hi, thanks for the advice.
I agree, it shouldn't have caused 'fear and alarm' - But the police have had me detained, questioned, finger prints taken and sent away to be matched against the letter & envelope. You're saying you doubt an offence has even been committed, but isn't it already past that stage as I have been detained? Or is it still possible theres no offence been committed & it could be dropped even now / after prints are found that match mine?
I have 2 questions: 1) I only touched the ENVELOPE once with my bare hands, and never the letter with bare hands - Will my prints be traceable from that 1 time I touched it? 2) I'm sure the forensic people will match my prints, if so, will this almost certainly go further? or is there still a chance the police decide there was no offence committed?
