Never accept an invitation from the police to "come have a chat." Instead, contact your lawyer and request his advice. If the police say you are free to leave at any time and you voluntarily speak with them - everything you say will be used against you.
You do not have to consent to a search of your car, house or other property. In order to conduct a search without your consent, the police must have a warrant signed by a judge. If the police have a warrant or good reason to search your garage, you do not have to consent to a search of the rest of your house. Under all circumstances, never consent to a search of your home, automobile, or person.
