What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? california.
on friday august 12th 2011, i awoke at about 2am to find that i had 6 missed calls from my ex- mother in-law, on several messages she stated that my ex- boyfriend had been arrested while driving my vechicel. i immidetaily went to my driveway only to find that my car was not parked where i left it. i then contacted the San Bernardino police department. who told me that they had impounded my vechicel and placed a 30 day hold on it, when i told the officer that my car was taken without my permission, the officer asked if my ex had ever been given permission to drive my car. i stated yes the day i bought it my ex and about 5 of my friends drove it. he stated that since my ex had been allowed to drive my car in the past it is consider implied consent and the hold would not be lifted do to the fact that he was driving on a suspended license. , i told the officer that my 8 year old son let my ex into my home without my knowledge and i hadn't given anyone permission to take my vehicle, long story short after explaining the situation in a impound hearing the police aren't willing to lift the hold, i don't know what to do. My car is a brand new 2011 Chevy Malibu, i haven't even had it a whole month
