Two men accused of stealing parts from the car Paul Walker died in were arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department, according to a Dec. 5 report in TMZ. The Los Angeles Times states that the two thieves supposedly made off with part of the Porsche Carrera GT’s roof while it was being towed away by the County Sheriff’s Department.
A witness saw a male exit a vehicle that was following the tow truck. The male grabbed a piece of the wrecked Porsche off the tow truck bed. The male drove away with the stolen vehicle part. The tow truck driver reported the theft to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station," a statement from the Sheriff's Department said.
The first suspect to be identified is Jameson Witty, 18 years-old, and evidence of the stolen parts were found at his place of residence. The second suspect has not been publicly identified, but will reportedly turn himself into custody.
Paul Walker died of traumatic and fire related injuries in the deviating crash that occurred only 300 yards from the site of Walker’s charity, Reach Out WorldWide, event on Saturday Nov. 30. Paul Walker’s friend, Roger Rodas, was behind the wheel of the sports car when it crashed into a light pole and two trees, finally bursting into flames.
