Can the police take my car keys?

so about 10 mins ago, i get pulled over for speeding on the way home. the cop told me to turn off my engine and give him the keys then inssurance, licences, and reg. long story short told me to slow down and gave me back everything, except for the keys!! i couldnt identify his cop car

anyways, can he do this? im starting to think he might be a crook and steal my car at any given moment because he knows where i live now(good thing I did not have my house keys on the ring). i am about to go to the police department in a few minutes to see if i can get my keys back though.

Crazy... Never heard of this happening, but then again, living in LA, there have been quite a few instances of fake cops stopping people...

Sorry to hear. What city police was it? Sheriff? CHP? At least CALL the police station and report it.

ok what did the car look like?

Also keys for what? Your the dumb one for doing it. Not trying to act tough but since when does that happen. common sense.

You didnt realize right away you didnt have it and say something. Could have easily gotten out of the car.

I call BS, atleast i hope so otherwise your dumb.

yes they can take your keys, but they're supposed to give it back after.

Nice to hear that he's dropping it back off though.

there's no law governing cops IMO they can do all they want. fucking pigs IMHO.

aside from dissing law enforcement, it's good to take the key out of the keyhole and placing it on the dash while both hands are on the steering wheel.
