    I’m thinking there’s something in his car he does NOT want found.

      Nah, it would already have been found. Cops do an inventory search when they impound and tow operators will generally do their own inventory, too.

      People get kind of… dumb at impound lots sometimes. I did that for a little while, it had its moments. Fun having people come to get cars that were completely destroyed/unrepairable, people busted for possession saying they just need to get their insurance card to get the car released and next thing you know they’re pulling the back seat out to look under it (but cops beat ’em to it). People wanting to fight. People thinking tears work in lieu of money and documentation. People calling the cops on you for following the release laws (yep, the same cops who impounded the car in the first place).

      Had the inventory save my ass a few times. One woman drank $200 away, then got arrested being passed out drunk behind the wheel. Tried to say me or the cops took the money when she showed up to get the car with her husband. Another dude lost his shit and had a standoff with the cops in his car, ended up getting arrested, said that I took his percocet, insisted he asked PD and PD said they didn’t have it. Firearms and controlled substances went with PD, every damn time. Called PD, they had the drugs.

Play nice.
