What is the name of your state? Tennessee
I received a voice mail last week from a detective in a nearby County. He stated that he needed to speak with me regarding a theft and "had enough for an arrest warrant". I called him today thinking this was an issue of mistaken identity. He stated that a girl I was recently involved with for a short time reported that I broke into her home and took a ring belonging to her. He states that the only other things taken were clothing that belonged to me, i.e. clothing I had left at her residence. When I stated that I knew nothing about the issue and had not spoken to this girl in a few months, he responded with, "look we just want to get the ring back, you can keep your clothes." I was offended by his assumptious tone, and told him obviously this girl (who had some anger managment issues) had made this allegation up and I did not wish to discuss the matter with him, and if he felt he had information which indicates I should be arrested, to do as he felt he needed too, but I was not going to be treated like a theif over the phone when I am a law abiding citizen, told him to have a good day and hung up. He called back a few minutes later and stated he was going to have an arrest warrant for me did I want to turn myself in or be picked up? I was angered greatly by this, so I responded that I had never broke into anyone's home and I wasn't turning myself in for anything, to do what he felt he needed to do and again hung up.
Can someone just say you did something and the police will arrest you? I mean, I left a 27 flat screen TV and a playstation 2 at her residence because I knew her son enjoyed them and prior to me bringing the my TV to her residence they had only a 13 inch TV. I told her she could just keep them. Why would I break in and get clothing and whatever ring she has, (she was never married, so I don't think she owned any diamonds or anything) and just leave approx 500-600 dollars in electronic equipment? Oh well, I am just venting now! How should I proceed on this?
Thanks in advance for any responses.
