It really depends on WHY the police towed the truck. They aren't required to connect the decision to the person they were originally investigating, but they cannot seize the truck without any justification.
Please DO NOT message or phone me with further questions or comments as the discussions would be outside this forum and would not be visible to the public (the exception to this being for serious prospective clients). If you have additional follow up questions or additional facts to add, re-draft them into a new question and repost it. My responses on this website DO NOT constitute a consultation, nor do they establish an attorney-client relationship. Only a written retention agreement signed by client and myself will establish an attorney-client relationship.
Very possibly, as police are not authorized to impound vehicles because they happen to be on the side of the road. However a legal opinion based on all the facts here would require a thorough review by a criminal or civil rights lawyer depending on what you are looking for. It's not clear if you or a loved one was charged with a crime.
