illegally repossessed??? Sounds more like dumbly sold. You should call a local attorney for state spectic advice.The seller should either be listed on the title as LEINHOLDER OR have a perfected security interest(UCC filing). If neither of these, things get shaky. Maybe that's why the seller wants the title back so badly. Call an attorney.

What can police do if an unlawful repo is reported to them?

An unlawful repo is a theft. Hence it would be handled as such. But most repo companies have the documentation to show they have the right, whether you feel so or not, to take possession of the vehicle. In fact, in most jurisdicitions they advise the police of it before, or right after, attempting the repo. What good would an unlawful repo do someone...they couldn't get title?

As legal owner of a vehicle can you repo a car if there is no contract between you and the registered owner?

If you have TIN (Title In Hand) and you are in fact the legal owner of the car I see no reason why you couldn't repo said car. In the event that they have gotten a new title though it could pose a problem for one is needed to get a used car registered. It would most likely be questioned why there is no contract and have to be taken up in court.
