A: If your vehicle was towed by a private tow truck from a Convention Center parking lot, the owner of the vehicle may not report it as stolen as long as the towing was conducted lawfully. California law allows property owners to have vehicles towed from their property under certain circumstances, such as when the vehicle is parked in a way that violates posted rules or is blocking access to the property. However, the property owner must follow specific requirements and post signs indicating that unauthorized vehicles may be towed. If these requirements are not met, the towing may be considered unlawful and the vehicle owner may have legal recourse. It is recommended that you contact an attorney for further advice on your specific situation.
