I am divorced and my ex has one of the vehicles, I am unable to sign the title over to him because the vehicle was in a chapter 13.(meaning my name is still on the vehicle) He has claimed that the the vehicle has been impounded, is there a website that people can look up to see if their vehicle have been impounded? Thanks
If the vehicle was towed by a law enforcement agency, it would be listed in the Stolen Vehicle System. Therefore, you can contact any law enforcement agency agency to see if it was towed. However, keep in mind, listings drop out after 30 days. In addition, the law enforcement agency who towed it would have sent a notice to the Registered Owner at the owner’s last address with DMV. (Vehicles impounded for evidence related to a crime are handled differently.) My suggestion is that you call Sacramento Police Department Records at (916) 808-0620 and have the license plate run to see if the car has been towed and stored. It would be helpful if you knew the approximate date. Make sure to have the vehicle license number when you call. We can also check our system to see if it was towed over 30 days ago and has fallen out of the system.
