If I am being interrogated for a stolen wallet I did not steal, what should I do?

I left my debit card at a store around the same time frame a woman left her wallet. Some people called into the store claiming that they knew me/ the woman and retrieved the wallet/made charges or stole money. I went into get my debit card and was told that I was involved in the case; since I have been interrogated by the police and was told I was going to be confronted by a detective. What should I do?
