Re: Do Police Have to Accept Evidence Given to Them
they had no right to take the papers. For them to take them as evidence, it would have had to been either as a result of an investigation or it was obvious evidence of a crime. The first obviously is not true and for them to determine the second, they would need to read and investigate a crime. Unless they have a warrant, they cannot simply take anything they want.
If you believe your BF is committing a crime and want to see him prosecuted, contact the local DA and report it to them. They can initiate an investigation.
You do realize that you being aware of the crime and quite likely having the benefit of the proceeds of the crime does tend to implicate you in the crime, right?
Since you started this, you are somewhat forced to follow through now lest you will continue to establish a possible involvement with the crimes.
and if you talked to the FBI, why didn't they run out and collect the evidence? They might actually have a more appropriate role in the investigation than the local police as many of the crimes you spoke of are Federal.
