Best bet is to call the police department and ask


I agree with my colleague - speak to the police agency and find out if and when they plan to sell the vehicle.


Have you spoken to your attorney about this? If it was seized pursuant to a DUI arrest you have a legal process that you are entitled to before a seized vehicle can be sold or acquired by the state. Speak with your attorney about it. If you don't have one I would suggest contacting one without delay. Good luck.

Contact a local DUI attorney about this and about your DUI case as soon as possible.
