hindering secured creditor venue Login/Join

Local car dealership sells car on credit to guy who lives in another county. Guy defaults on note and hides car from repo man in the other county. Where does venue lie --- dealership county where security agreement is "filed" or in county where the car was concealed? CCP 13.09 gives venue to county where security agreement is filed if the property is "disposed of." In this case I have no evidence that the car was disposed of, only concealed so as to hinder repossession. The caselaw I've found seems to be of little help. Anybody have any thoughts?
