When a stolen car is recovered, an attempt to contact you will be made by a MGPD employee. Your vehicle will most likely go to a tow yard. If contact with you was unsuccessful, the next step would be for the tow yard to send you a notice in the mail. They are only required to send the notice to the address on your registration. If you do not have that information updated, you may not get the notice and your tow bill will increase daily.
