Impounded Vehicles

If your vehicle was impounded by the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and towed and stored by a tow company, you will need to obtain an Impound Release Form from our office before the tow company will release your vehicle. Please come to our office during normal business hours to obtain an Impound Release Form.  

You will need:

  • Proof of ownership for the vehicle 
  • A driver with a valid Driver License.
  • Proof of current insurance. This document should include: 
    • The impounded vehicle's vehicle identification number
    • Policy number 
    • Expiration date
    • Insurance company's name and phone number for verification purposes
  • $125 cash or money order.

If you have had three DUI arrests within the last 10 years, your vehicle may have been towed as a forfeiture per ORS 809.720(b). Please call the County Counsel's Office 541-265-4108 to see if you qualify to get your vehicle back.

Seized Property

If your property has been seized as evidence or is recovered stolen property, you will need to fill out a Property Release Request Form with the Lincoln County District Attorney's Office. The DA will send a response to the requester and the Sheriff's Office Property Technician. You will then need to make an appointment with the Sheriff's Office Property Technician where you will provide identification and proof of ownership. If you fail to make an appointment we may be unable to release your property when you arrive.
