    Default Re: Recovering Car Towed by Police After Charges Are Dropped

    Once a tow has taken place, whether charges where droped, or for any reason, the tow company want's their charges for the truck to pick it up. Then charges for storing the car by the day. If you go get the car without permission on the tow companies property, you will be charged for theft, and trespassing. I know it sounds wrong, but that's what will happen. Get the car out soon, or charges can get higher.
