(ORLEANS) - The Orleans Police Department would like to remind area residents that it is a violation of Indiana state law to have a vehicle which is inoperable on private or public property.

Chief Roy McFarland says a vehicle which is inoperable is considered abandoned by definition according to Indiana law.

Orleans officers will be tagging all inoperable vehicle located on public and private property within the Town of Orleans.

Once a vehicle is tagged the owner of the vehicle will have 72 hours to remove the vehicle or the vehicle will be towed and the owner of the vehicle will be responsible for any and all towing and storage fees incurred.

McFarland would like to encourage anyone to be cooperative so they can avoid having the vehicle removed from their property and avoid the costs of towing and storage fees.

McFarland would like to thank citizens for their cooperation in this matter.
