Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with your question.
Do you have insurance coverage for theft? If so, your insurance company should pay the fee. If not, it is lawful and proper that a fee be charged for towing and storage. You could take the person who took the car to small claims court and sue him for the impound fee, or get it as restitution if he is found and prosecuted.
