Stolen cars are impounded for a few reasons. One would be that the Police might want to check it for finger prints. Another reason that the car would be impounded is if it was stolen, and the police think it was stolen too easily, they might want to check for Insurance Fraud and last but not least, they might impound a car while trying to find the owner.
Call 911 to report the car stolen. If it has been repo'd or impounded they will tell you.
If a finnancing reposesor has takin the car, and it was stolen from him. it would be listed as a stolen vehicle by the local police. when found would be immediately towed and impounded. until the "OWNER" of the car retrieves it.. Wich means the bank, or financing company that the car was bought from.
It's highly variable. You'll need to pay towing and storage, and depending on why the car was impounded you might have to clear that up as well. Your best bet is to call the number you were given on the notice that your car had been impounded and ask. If you haven't received notice yet (maybe you noticed the car was missing and called the police, and that's how you found out it was impounded rather than stolen), then the police should have given you a number to call; call that.
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.
