Case just came out yesterday 12/30/03. Comm. v. Brinson. "the government may not impound and conduct an inventory search of a car based on the arrest of the owner, where the car was lawfully parked in a privately owned parking lot and there was no evidence that the car constituted a safety hazard or was at risk of theft or vandalism."

What is your dept policy on this type of inventory?

If the Owner goes with towed vehicle can you or can you NOT inventory the vehicle? (Regardless for reason of tow: DMV or MVV)
