Vehicle Theft and Break-Ins
Prevention is the best way to avoid having your vehicle broken into or stolen.
If you are going to leave items in your car, make sure they are hidden and not easily seen.
If you are visiting San Diego and traveling with luggage, check them at the hotel instead of leaving them in your car as you explore.
Recovering a Stolen Vehicle
The San Diego Police Department also recover stolen vehicles. If found, an officer will attempt to call the registered owner to let them know about the recovery.
If we are unable to contact the registered owner or if the owner takes over 20 minutes to get to the vehicle, the vehicle will be stored at a City of San Diego contracted towing company until the registered owner can recover the vehicle.
