I found a VERY jargon-y article on the DMV’S website, and don’t think it was quite giving me the info I was looking for.

There’s a 5-speed Focus ZX3 sitting in the parking lot of my apartment complex. It’s tags expire in February, but by my count it hasn’t moved in like 4-6 months; like, not even opened or anything, there’s cobwebs in the wheels and the door handle has no “clean” spot where it would have been opened. Nobody in my complex knows who it belongs to.

So, would I call the DMV and ask? The Police? Does anyone have a plate check service subscription and want to get me the hookup? 5TWT070
