Tyler, TX asked in Civil Rights and Criminal Law for Texas

Q: Do I have to provide the names of employees they were at facility cleaning and give it to the police. Wallet stolen

We were told if they were going to do an investigation and look at the camera from the office as well as the store where attempt was made at Walmart. This happened last night so clearly they don’t have the investigation completed My point is that if we provide the names and it turns out one of them had a charge of theft or similar from 10 or 15 years ago or however long ago it would automatically be assumed that it was one of these without them having it on Camera yet to prove it and I hate to and then in the end found out that it wasn’t i our employee. But you know how that goes but I just was checking do we have to provide those names before they finish their investigation apparently there’s cameras at the office where the wallet was taken and the attempt to use at the store

A: You could probably make them get a warrant but you might want to ask a local criminal defense attorney who knows how the cops operate in your jurisdiction... they can make more problems for you if they are unprofessional jerks.
