I have not been notified that the police have dropped the investigation and I have chased a number of times over the last three years to get my property returned, then out of the blue I received a letter saying to arrange to pick up my property.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Sadly not. At present there is no time limit to which the police can keep you on bail.

The government are looking to change the law, but it has not yet been done.

I am sorry if this is not the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
