  1. I’m glad that they got someone for stealing a car. My question is, why didn’t the police call the person who reported the car stolen who was probably the owner of the car, instead of impounding the car. Now the owner will not only have to pay for damages that might have been done to the car, but will also have to pay impound fees. Most impound lots close on Friday afternoon, and don’t open again until Monday morning. This same thing has happened to several people I know, some in Shreveport, and one had to pay $500 to get her car out of impound. This to me just does not seem right or fair, especially since the owner’s phone number is listed on the police report. I thought the idea was to help the victim and punish the offender, not punish both.
