Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.

Thank you.

You are not required to cooperate with the police and jeopardize your safety. If you do want a cooperation deal, however, you're better off waiting until you've been arrested and you have a lawyer. Then your lawyer can cut a cooperation deal with the prosecutor. This is because prosecutors keep their word when making such a deal, as your judge would be aware of the agreement. Police all too often don't honor these informal agreements.

If you don't cooperate, the police can possibly have you charged with possession of the weapon. Are they saying you stole the gun? Do you have a prior felony conviction where you're not allowed to have a gun? If you can say no to both of those, I don't see what they would be charging you for, as the video is blurry and they never found the weapon.

i have a resale shop here in jeffersoncity

Right. So I'm not really sure that they have charges they can file. They may just be trying to use you for information. If you know something about all this and are afraid you can be implicated, then you need to consult with a local criminal attorney. You don't need to hire one yet, because there's nothing you can do. But you do want to be able to tell the police that you have a lawyer and that he has advised you not to discuss this matter any further with them.

If they can arrest you -- I am not sure they've got enough to do that -- they can do that, but you don't want to give them information that can be used against you on their case. You shouldn't be talking to the police at all except with a lawyer.

By resale shop you mean a pawn shop? Are they looking to charge you for selling stolen goods?
