Scottish Law Questions? Ask a Scots Lawyer
Thank you for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland and can help you with this. Theft is a common law crime. There are no time limits for the prosecution of persons involved in common law crimes so the answer to your question is no, there are no timescales here. I hope that helps.

I presume to take a final statement from you before they complete the case but it's impossible to speculate.
You should not be asking any questions nor indeed answering any as you don't want to incriminate yourself in any way. If they are coming to your house by appointment it would generally indicate that they are not treating you as a suspect.
You can say to them that you have already answered those questions.
No problem. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
I suspect they will want your statement, yes, as part of the investigation but after a year? For a theft investigation. If it appears that they are treating you as a suspect say nothing at all as previously suggested by me.
