A: All you can really do is keep reaching out to see when the vehicle might be released. It all depends on if they’ve completed investigating the contents of the vehicle.

A: You could contact the police investigator to see if they are done with it, and will release the police hold. Or you could file a motion in court under the Return of Property statute. But police can respond to that that the car is evidence. Whether the judge believes that may be another matter.
