Before paying the tow and storage bill and picking up your vehicle from the tow company, you will need to get an Impound Release Form in person at the Sheriff's Office by providing:
Note: Release forms are only available Monday through Friday (except holidays) from 8:30 am to Noon and 1 to 5 pm.
If you have had three DUII 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.
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.
If your vehicle has been "impounded" to a tow yard, you should contact the tow company directly regarding your personal property. They may allow you to get your registration and proof of insurance out of the vehicle so you can complete the Impound Release Form at the Sheriff's Office.
If your vehicle has been towed as a "DUII Forfeiture," contact the Sheriff's Office Property Technician at 541-265-4912 to set up an appointment to receive your property. This does not include anything that is attached to the vehicle.
