How can I find out if my car has been impounded?
Cars can be impounded for different reasons. If the car is considered evidence in a criminal investigation, you will need to contact the Detective Bureau at 207-874-8596. If the car was involved in a traffic crime and has been impounded as part of the investigation, you can contact the Traffic Division at 207-874-8532. If the car was impounded for a 15-day hold because the operator was a Habitual Offender or was driving while suspended and under the influence, the owner of the car must contact the Traffic Division to set up a hearing to determine if the car can be released before the end of the 15-day hold. In the case of a 15-day hold, the owner of the car will be notified of the hold by certified mail and will receive a copy of the city ordinance explaining the impound process.
