As a general answer, yes, they can. The police are required to investigate suspicious circumstances. However without knowing more specific information about this event it is impossible to give a more complete answer. Where was the owner of the vehicle? Was the vehicle occupied? Abandoned? ?

Can police search your car when I'm not there?

I'll assume you meant to ask "Can the police search mycar when I'm not there?"The only situation where the police would require your presence is if the justification for the search was your consent. Otherwise, the search could be based on the car appearing to be abandoned, unlawfully parked (which would permit it to be towed and inventoried), used in a crime, based on probable cause, incidental to an arrest, or other other circumstances. Even a consent search would be lawful if you or someone else having control of the vehicle had given their consent for a search with you not present.
