Subject: BS: help - I am starting to panic
A letter arrived through my door today from Essex Police regarding "Intention to Prosecute". However, it was addressed to someone who I have never heard of, and who does not, and as far as I am aware, has never lived at my address.
The offence was in respect of a vehicle I have never owned a Mercedes C63 AMG AUTO, which was driven on 9/11/2014, when I was at home. My last car, which has been off the road for more than a year, and has just been sold for scrap was a Vauxhall Corsa,
The police have sent me a form asking for the identity of the driver, or asking the mysterious Martin Ryzio. However, the only question I can answer is the name of the driver, as this is the name provided by the police. The letter says that I can be prosecuted for not providing the information, even though I do not have a clue as per the persons address etc.
The letter also say that the police will not disccuss this with me as it forms part of an active investigation.
What do I need to do? Can I be prosecuted in Martin Rozio's absence? Can I be accused of given a false name? Should I worry about this? If Martin Ryzio doe snot respond do th epolice have the power to break down my door with an arrest warrant?
