Vallejo Police Finds More Than Abandoned Cars on Sunday Search


During an "abandoned auto enforcement operation" Sunday, Vallejo police didn't discover many abandoned vehicles, but found plenty else to keep them busy.

Officers said they checked into 102 reports of abandoned vehicles in Vallejo. While 11 cars were marked to be towed if not moved within 72 hours, 25 others were impounded for various violations, two were recovered as stolen and seven were issued parking citations. Three moving violation citations were made Sunday, and one person was arrested.

Fifty-nine of the 102 reported vehicles were either currently registered and legally parked or weren't found at the reported locations, police said.

More than 500 reports of abandoned vehicles have yet to be checked out, Vallejo police said Sunday. They will be checked in the order the complaints were received. More similar enforcement operations will take place in the coming months, police said.

Vallejo residents can report suspected abandoned vehicles by calling (707) 648-4682; by going online to and clicking on "City Hall," "Police" and "Online Services;" or by downloading the Vallejo Police Mobile App, available for iOS and Android platforms.
