My car was impounded last week and I recovered it on the weekend, however today I opened the boot and see my speaker, amplifier, my bag and work cables are all missing. I mean are they allowed to remove my things??

 

I called the impound but it's just an automated message stating opening times and the documents required. The impound is far from my house so wouldn't really want to travel all that way and come back with no outcome.

 

Any one have any suggestions on what I can do?

No it is theft

You need to report this to the police and get a reference number

When the car was seized you should have been given a copy of the seizure notice, which (if it is filled out correctly by the police officer in front of you) will have a list of stuff you have taken from the vehicle, and stuff that has been left behind. You would only sign that document once the list has been read back to you.

 

What is written on the seizure notice ?

On the seizure notice the pink slip it says my name, address, where they seized the car from and a couple of questions where they ticked yes or no things like if driver Id confirmed etc.

 

Nothing there about car contents

phone the police an report it as theft,but as you didn't check it when you collected it don't think you have much hope.looking on the bright side

they might have have been removed for safe keeping.

There should be two sections on the rear, though the seizure notices I have seen are normally white or blue - form 1239 ?, not pink.

Go into the same police station you had to visit with your documents etc and report the theft of the items whilst in the control of the police/their contracted company. dont let them fob you off with an incident number for your insurers, insist on a full statement being taken and if the desl officer wont agree then ask to see the duty inspector or station senior.
