Q: My car was stolen early sat morning. The police are not willing to write us a stolen car report?

My car was stolen early Saturday morning, my keys were in the car, I was at a friend's house with two other people my wife was home the whole night, we have full coverage responsible and non responsible full coverage insurance, the car is completely paid off and only worth a couple thousand dollars and the police will not write me a stolen car report. They're judging me and my wife making us feel as if we are the perpetrators rather than the victims it hurts to be honest and makes me very insecure and non trustworthy of the system I've been completely transparent and honestly

A: You can make a "counter report" that you write yourself. The police appear to be questioning your story. Making a false police report and insurance fraud are crimes. Tread carefully.

A: more info needed.

however, I usually suggest that the client goes to the police chief to push a filing and if not successful there to contact the mayor and city council for assistance.

you can also ask to make a counter report or see if another agency, like CHP, would do so for you.
