    It is possible to be arrested if you hide a car from repo.

    A civil action can be taken against you in a court. In Georgia, O.C.G.A. 16-9-51 "Hiding, encumbering or endangering property subject to security interest........" is a misdemeanor charge. They can get a warrant against you & then there is an outstanding warrant for your arrest on the books. The next time you are pulled over.....possibly to jail you go and only a judge can let you out.

    What kind of notice are you expecting to get?

    You know if you have defaulted on the loan or not.

    They do not have to send you a certified letter. The second you default, in Georgia, they can just come get it.

    If you impede the repo process in any way a magistrate judge will most likely file a warrant.

    The last time I had to file like this was exactly the same. Guy had his car in the garage, repo man could not get it. He spent 3 days in jail, his court date is 4 more months out. Here is hoping he gets me the money before then, for his sake.
