Typically, police take custody of the vehicle and it is turned over to a private towing company for "safekeeping." Of course, they also search the vehicle to make sure all of your property in inventoried. In the event they find drugs, charges can also be placed. Within the city limits of Tampa, some Tampa Police Department arrests for drug or prostitution charges result in efforts to forfeit the vehicle. These cases are almost always settled by the driver buying the vehicle back from the police. Otherwise, hefty towing and storage fees are assessed and upon proof of ownership (tough since they take the driver's license) the vehicle can be retrieved. The jail usually will provide a document that will tell those charged where they can find the car.
