To have a vehicle released from the impound lot, the OWNER of the vehicle must show up in person at the St. Marys Police Department with either a valid driver’s license or a valid state issued ID card, and a copy of the paid tow bill. If the owner does not have a valid ID, due to it being confiscated at the time of arrest, then identification can be verified at the Police Department. If the owner is unable to be present, the person coming in for the release of the vehicle MUST have a signed NOTARIZED statement from the owner stating that the individual has permission to obtain the release of the vehicle.
To obtain a release for an impounded vehicle that is marked For Court Release, the OWNER must present a paper issued by the court stating that the vehicle may be released to the OWNER. The same identification process as previously stated applies.
Impounded vehicles will only be released when a licensed individual is present.
