Who is responsible if items were stolen from your vehicle after it was impounded?

If impound was caused by your vehicle parked illegally, then the impound lot or the towing company could be held responsible. If it was impounded because it was retrieved as a stolen vehicle, then no one can be held responsible. However, in both cases, the personal belongings in the vehicle can be covered by either your own auto insurance under the Comprehensive portion of your policy or by your own homeowners/renters insurance under the Personal Property portion of your policy. They are subject to your deductible/s.

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.

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.
