    SAS.. Need I say more.
    Okay, so 2 weeks ago a sheriff came to my house and asked for a person who doesn't live here, ( Someone I have no clue about/ never heard of his name)

    He asks, are you ..name..?

    I said no.

    He says "are you sure"?

    I said unless someone changed my name without me knowing, I am pretty positive.

    Moral of the story.. He left.. I showed him my license to prove I am not ....

    Well today.. he comes back.

    Still doesn't believe that .name.. doesn't live here.

    Basically what I am trying to ask here is. What can I do to get this guy out of my face? I am not who he is looking for and have stated and proved it.

    If he comes back ONE MORE TIME.. I want to be able to fight back. Can I tell him anything basically to GTFO? Like go to court and prove to a judge or some shit? I feel like I am being harassed.

    Thanks...

    The right thing to do would be to do whatever you can to best assist him in doing his job, but that's just my opinion.

    this thread will get locked.


    the guy he is looking for probably shows that address in the state system or in their local system. call the PD and tell the supervisor, dont get all worked up and defensive over it, people make mistakes dude. he is not harassing you, and is probably just as pissed about coming to your house all the time as you are having him there. call the sherriffs office and talk to the supervisor and be done. dont be a dick.

    HOLY OVER REACTION BATMAN!!

    Fight back? Seriously?

    I would guess that your address has come up in an investigation and he feels as though the person he is looking for is at your house. The more cooperative you are in showing that the person he is looking for is not at your address the sooner he'll be able to confirm that the address is wrong.

    Or....

    Do you have any outstanding warrants? I know guys on warrant squads that will go to an address where they have a warrant for someone and ask for someone different. when the suspect gives them their ID to prove they aren't the guy they are looking for the warrant squad can see that their suspect really is there while making it seem like a address mixup.

    Just hope you don't get any visits at 3 am... if you do just lay on the floor lol.

    This sounds like good advice. But I do have to wonder what the law is on this. It can't be okay for the cops to keep coming a knockin for the same damn thing over and over. Normally if someone else did it, you'd call the cops.......

    He is obviously looking for someone and should have a reason to. I would offer him to come in and look around (not search) and that will show him that the guy is not there.

    nope, just call the OIC and talk to them about it. its not a big deal and nothing worth getting worked up about. but you have to call the supervisor to figure out why they are coming there.

    SAS.. Need I say more.
    So many replies.. So much hate for a simple question. I've lived here over 2 years, previous man lived here over 3 years, no one by the name he is looking for lived here. I tried to help him, I spent over 15 minutes each time telling him I have no information. Fuck I don't even know 10 people in this entire state. He isn't doing his job very well if you ask me. I gave him proof and many other indications that I have no idea who the man he is looking for.

    No I have no warrants, I don't even have a single ticket on my record.

    Meh, just lock the thread I'll just call the supervisor.

    you also don't know what information he has that has made your address of so much interest to him... i would be more concerned about that than a total of 30 min of your time being wasted so far

    He's got your address somehow.
    Could be a clerical error where someone transposed a house number, or there's confusion between N/S/E/W Main St....

    ...or the guy he's looking for may have used your address at some point.
    If the BG lives somewhere, the people living with him are generally not going to out him. They'll do exactly what you did. They'll show their ID and insist that the guy has never lived there.

    Yes, you need to take this to someone above the detective. He's just working with the limited information he has, however wrong it might be.
    There's no law that says a cop can't come to your door on the 15th of every month and ask for someone who doesn't live there... and such infrequent visits do not rise to the level of harassment within the first few visits.
    If it were every day, or at inconsiderate times (3am)... ya, you might have something.

    come and look around is searching. i would be hesitant to do so even if i thought there was nothing to hide. i dont trust anybody i dont know, even if its a cop. id call the sup like the other leo said. here in texas there have been many home invasions with cop looking cars and people that are just impersonating. but i would not give any attitude either. it doesn't do you any good. you,ll just make him look harder at you when he should be concentrating somewhere else. gl op

    While you may withdraw your consent to search at any time after providing consent, and such refusal to consent or withdrawal of consent may not be used as probable cause to obtain a warrant... it certainly does give him a reason to start digging deeper to find PC.
