I had a car stolen and the police found and returned the wheels only back to me. There damaged but worth quite a lot of money.
Ive had a quote to refurbish them of £560.00 can i claim from the person they seized them from?

Are the police taking this person to court (criminal prosecution)? If they are and he/she is convicted the court will probably award you compensation.
Another option is for you to take out a civil prosecution. However this will cost you money in applying + a lawyer.
Even if you are awarded compensation it is not guaranteed that this person will ever pay it. He/she is probably a career criminal and on benefits.
Your car should have been insured at least third party fire and theft. Claim off your insurance company.

The cps said unlikeky to get a conviction so the police wouldn't take it to court. The insurance didn't pay out for the wheels as they are after market ones
