Legal Question in Criminal Law in Louisiana

Apperantly in 2006 there was a warrant out for me and I did not realize it. Yesterday they came to my home and told my girlfriend. I spoke with the officer and assured him the I would turn my self in and did.he did not handcuff me until I reach the door and was ready to walk in for booking. I was never told what when why. Only that it was a felony theft of a powerwasher. I was never given my rights and did not have a hold on me I was in and out in less than 2 hours.He the officer kept saying that I would run . Now he says I will get a letter in the mail about the court date. I did asked why have I know been contacted before now because I have lived at the address for almost 2 and half years and been working here. Why would I turn myself in if I was going to run? I drove myself to the jail and all I asked is to get this straighten out. He also told me that the reason nothing was done was because they forgot to renew the warrent. Please advise me as to what I need to do .

Get an attorney. Do not try to handle a felony on your own.
