hi all, i posted this in off topic, but wanted to here as well, hopin more local members might see it.
does anyone here know how long a police dept. can hang onto, & not release a stolen veh report to the owner of the veh, the person who reported it stolen, or an insursnce company?
i had a veh. stolen off my mechanics lot last nov. it was recovered in jan. completely stripped!!! since then the p.d. has been unwilling to release a copy of the report to my mechanic (who reported the theft along with several others from his lot that night) me (the legal owner) or my mechanis ins. company. ( i had liability only, so he filed a claim thru his ins. company, along with claims for the other vehicles)
this is goin on 7mos w/no end in sight!!! it just doesnt seem right to me, but im not a cop, or a lawyer.
