LMPD impound lot is overflowing with cars no one wants to claim


Somewhere, sitting among the 1,250 cars at the Louisville Metro Police Department’s impound lot, is a black 1988 Chevrolet Camaro. It’s been there since police towed it on March 27, 2004.

Many of us would consider it junk.

Police consider it evidence.

But most of all, it’s part of the problem that has led to the existence of hundreds of abandoned — sometimes wrecked, sometimes stripped — cars sitting on streets all over Louisville.

It’s just one of hundreds of vehicles taking up precious room in a lot where police hold cars left in their custody until their owners can get them out of hock or until they can be sold or until police the solve crimes that are somehow tied to the cars.

But not one of the cars has been in the lot on the western-most stub of Frankfort Avenue longer than Anthony Calhoun’s Camaro.
