Towed / Impounded Vehicles
In order to get your vehicle released the vehicle must be currently registered or the fees paid to the Department of Motor Vehicles to get a temporary operating permit. Registered owner and a valid licensed driver must be present at time of release. There is a $50.00 release fee for towed vehicles and a $150.00 release fee for vehicles towed and impounded for 30 days. These fees must be paid at the front counter of the Murrieta Police Department to obtain your release paperwork. Cash only is accepted for release fees . Fees are subject to change.
After you receive your release paperwork from the PD you must then go to the tow yard that has possession of your vehicle. There you will need to pay the associated fees to the tow yard for the tow and storage of your vehicle. These fees are completely separate from the fees paid to the Police Department.
