Dozens of cars claimed from LMPD tow lot during third amnesty period

There are hundreds of unclaimed vehicles in the LMPD tow lot.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Right now there are still hundreds of unclaimed vehicles inside the Louisville Metro Police Department's impound lot.

To cut down on the number of vehicles impounded, the department offered its third amnesty period at the start of June.

Between May 28 through June 3, people were able to claim their cars without paying a fee. LMPD officials hoped this will break down a barrier that might be keeping the lot full.

On Wednesday, June 7, an LMPD spokesperson said 82 vehicles were picked up during the amnesty period. The total amount of fees waived was more than $19,000.

Last year, LMPD offered two amnesty periods -- one in January and another in September. Dozens of cars were picked up during those periods.
