I went by my old residence a few months back & was startled to see my good friends who were my previous neighbors gone! I knew they were in the process of moving but they had said they would call me b4 hand so I could possibly help on moving day! I knew they were gone due to the absence of their cass a motor home which I have Never seen them move-EVER SINCE THE DAY THEY BOUGHT IT!
I turned to go up their driveway
which is long about 1/4 mile and adjacent to my old driveway which was 1/2 mile long...as I went towards the house a plain bright orange box van went across the yard area onto to old driveway and accelerated quickly to the road I thought it was strange but was even more alarmed when I got up to the house & found no one around...it's a very large house & I knew from the past many people could be in the back...going around to the back I was shocked to find the back garage door open to about waist height and many items lined up all along the back of the garage-this was wrong it felt bad I grabbed my. Cell phone it was completely dead plus only one bar of cell tower strength...I remembered from our many years together as friends their was outside outlets back where the French doors were so I thought I would plug my phone in put everything back into the gag rage & clean up the yard (as there were papers blowing all over-not the way they would EVER LEAVE STUFF)! I got to work I soon found out the item used to hold open the garage door at 1st was a cement bench with 2 legs and a seat it was VERY HEAVY! I have kidney disease & cannot lift or carry item or risk causing my kidneys to bleed badly so I drove around and put the pieces in the back but suddenly I was attacked by a female mallard duck...I walked around & discovered her nest & clutch of eggs so I couldn't stay parked there so I moved to the French door drive which was just below & next to my phone.
I got everything cleaned & put away and the door back down just then I heard a car IT WAS MY NEIGHBOR!!! I was elated...calling out to him I said "RON, RON IM IN HERE WAIT THEN I HEARD HIM YELLING....I CALLED TO HIM AND GOT OUT THE DOOR TO BE FACED WITH HIS 9mm I started to explain what happend & he was on the phone with 911...he said get down shut up! I was so scared...obviously I was arrested (never read my rights though) taken to county jail held for about 8 hrs then released with no explanation or bail or bond or judge-nothing!
Over 2 months go by sheriff shows up at my friends house just walks in the house as I'm dressing (I started to take off my bathing suit but heard something...came out to be face to face with 2 cops)! They were yelling at me asking where was I hiding I said no where I was changing from swimming go feel the floor where I was standing!(they didn't)...they said they had a warrant for my arrest (not explained at all just that)...they handcuffed me took me back to jail overnight again-this time I was supposed to go in front of the magistrate but I didn't he released me on personal recognition ( or my promise I think) or $50,000 fine to show up tomorrow to go in front of him in person...
Being a holiday weekend I could not find a lawyer-will it hurt that I don't have one tomorrow-I cannot afford one I have VERY VERY SEVERE KIDNEY DISEASE SO MUCH SO I HAVE A PERMANENT IV LINE IN MY CHEST ("MEDIPORT") I take lots of narcotics & yes I have a doctor that will gladly back me up...what will happen tomorrow? I know now I should have called the police right away but hind sight is 20/20 I feel so stupid but I was only trying to help my friends! But I found out later someone had broke into their place before and now they are trying to say it was me but it wasn't . They say my finger prints are in the house but of course they would be because I was over often & we were very good friends!
I'm very scared- hurt to think my friends would think such bad things of me plus honestly I've never been in trouble and I shouldn't be for this because my heart was in. The right place but it Sure LOOKS BAD-help please
