And there's nothing saying officers don't have to read you your miranda rights, so they still notify you that you have the right to remain silent.
Actually, this doesn't really have anything to do with Miranda as the person wasn't under arrest, therefore Miranda does not apply. This is all about whether the 5th is an inalienable right or a privilege you need to invoke.
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.[
