How to report a car theft
Consider whether your car may have been towed due to a parking violation or repossession. Check with the impound lot in the city where you last saw the vehicle to verify whether the car is there.
Collect the following vehicle information for the theft report: year, make, model, body style, color, license plate number, vehicle identification number (VIN), value, and insurance carrier.
File a written report with the local or state police in the municipality where the theft occurred.
Make the report only if you are the vehicle’s registered owner.
Report the theft to your automobile insurance company online or by phone as soon as possible after filing the police report.
Complete and rapidly return any forms, such as a vehicle theft questionnaire, that your insurance carrier requires.
