I am sorry to hear this;

here are the relevant penal codes:

https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes_displaySection.xhtml?sectionNum=487.&lawCode=PEN

When a car is stolen it is important to contact law enforcement and insurance right away; if the car remains missing the DMV would need to be notified:

The car wasn't stolen, it got hit while parked by another driver. The car has been towed, I called the police and they don't want/can't release it at the moment.
Should I still go to the police station to file a claim?
Traffic Lawyer: legal, Attorney replied 8 months ago

Yes, accidents must be reported if there is property damage -please see:

https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/dmv/detail/forms/sr/sr1

That is applicable for damage over $1000
