They would need a warrant or permission from the owner of the garage or of the car or both. They could claim there was a risk the car would be driven out of the jurisdiction if they had to wait for a warrant.

Should you be interviewed by a police officer before being picked on warrant?

If the question is whether the police need to speak with you or interview you prior to arresting you on a warrant, the answer is no. If it was a requirement that they speak with you, anyone could avoid being arrested on a warrant simply be refusing to speak with the police. Police have an obligation to make sure they are serving the correct person (i.e. - the person named on the warrant) and to do so they will often ask questions first. If they already have a warrant for your arrest, that means that a judge already decided there was probable cause to believe you committed a crime. You might be interviewed after the arrest but if they have probable cause already there is no requirement for them to interview you prior to serving a valid warrant.
