The police would not have jurisdiction in such a matter. The person involved would need to pursue the action through the civil procedure as established by the laws of their state of residency.

Can the impound lot keep the items in your vehicle if your car was reported stolen?

No.Another View: The police may retain any items found in the car pending proof that they actually are your property.REMEMBER: The car was reported stolen... and then it was recovered and impounded. The perpetrators MAY have used the vehicle during a crime spree and stashed their stolen goods in the car. The owner of the stolen vehicle would not be the beneficiary of the stolen goods just because they were in his vehicle. and they may have to present proof that the items found in the car actually belong to them.

What do you do if someone gives you something then later threatens to report that you stole it?

As long as it is not stolen, to keep your ass outa trouble go to the police and tell the police the story on whats going. I had this same problem only thing is that I paid for the item and they reported it stolen, so I'm out $400 and a decent laptop. ------------ This would be a lesson for answerer number one to keep receipts. If someone gave me something then threatened to report to the police that I had stolen it. I would immediately return the item to that person and that would be it. No "thing" is worth the unnecessary hassle of trying to clear my name. It should also be a lesson to not accept "gifts" from someone you don't know well enough and don't know their motive for giving it to you.

Can you report your car stolen by your wife if it is in your name only?

Yes, you can. Before reporting it stolen I suggest you record (with her permission and knowledge of recording) that you want car otherwise it will be reported stolen. If she refuses to give you the car then you can report it stolen. I would check with local police or county police as some will not care and do nothing but get your car back without arresting spouse. It depends upon the state you reside in and the circumstances under which the vehicle came into her possession. Simply because the vehicle is in one spouse's name does not translate into the other spouse being liable for grand theft auto or any criminal act.

If a stolen car hit a parked car can the stolen cars owner not be held responsible even if a police report for the stolen car was placed after the hit and run was filled?

Assuming the stolen car was insured, the stolen cars insurance would be responsible. If the stolen car was not insured, the driver, if located would be responsible. If not located then the owner would probably be held responsible. Hopefully the struck vehicle is insured for "uninsured motorist" coverage. Filing the report after the accident would document the theft, but not neccesarily clear the owner of responsibility.

How do you find a vehicle if it was stolen but you still have the title?

Call the police, file a stolen vehicle report(I would think that would be common sense). If you're willing to spend more money to find the vehicle, after reporting it to the police, you can attempt to hire a reposession company to search for the car provided you have some idea where the car is.
