If police say they have a witness saying they saw me do something I didn’t do is it just a tactic?

hey say they have a witness that places me at an atm taking money from a lady but I was never even at that atm, nor did I steal from anyone. Are they just using this as a scare tactic?

    Yes. Do not talk with them without a lawyer there. They are trying to get you rattled.

    If you didn't do it, then certainly it's a lie. Police will often lie and trick to solve their cases. Say NOTHING to the police without an attorney!

    They are probably using this as a scare tactic. Never talk to the police about a crime you might have even been tangentially involved in. If they have enough evidence, they will arrest you. All too often a defendant actually gives them the evidence they need to make a charge. If you have an alibi, that is a defense.

    Get an attorney and put in your defense. The police could be attempting to pressure you or be mistaken, in any case make no statements or admissions until after you receive counsel.
