The fact that your trucks were taken without any notice of any violation is a denia of due process which is prohitited by the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. Even if there were a violation of any kind, your trucks could not be taken away without a hearing in which you would have the opportunity to be heard. That is what the definition of due prcocess is - That a citizen's property cannot be confiscated by the government, or government agency without notice and hearing.
Your recourse is to sue the City and the agency which took the trucks from your property. You would sue in Federal Court as this presents a Constitutional issue and a violation of your property rights.
It is not a violation of police protection because they have no authority which would be superior to that of the City or the agency which ordered the confiscation of your property
BONUS is always appreciated
That is the only way I get paid
