Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
I am afraid that you need to go to the court and get the court to order the release with waiver of fees if you do not have insurance
on your car that will cover this. If you have comprehensive insurance
, then they would cover the payment of the impound fees.
Also, if they made an arrest on the case, the court needs to release the vehicle anyhow, since the vehicle is considered evidence in the case. Thus, you would file a motion in the criminal court where the case is being heard and you would ask the court in the Motion for Release of Vehicle for an order letting your vehicle go and for waiver of the impound fees and towing fees.
At this point, I am sorry to say that the only way to do it is with the court order at this point and they cannot sell the car anyhow until the car has been released as evidence in the auto theft case.
