Paul Walker Death

Alleged Thieves of Charred Porsche Wreckage

Arrested

12/5/2013 8:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1130-paul-walker-accident-scene-car-facebook-3Two sickos got busted today for allegedly stealing parts of the Porsche Paul Walker died in Saturday afternoon ... according to the Sheriff's Department.

The accused thieves allegedly made off with a T-top from the roof of the Porsche Carrera GT while it was being towed from the accident site to an impound yard late Saturday night.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department ... the two men snatched the part when the tow truck stopped at a red light -- however the truck driver saw them drive off, and helped detectives identify them.

We're told 18-year-old Jameson Witty was arrested today -- and his cohort, who is out of state, has been contacted and will surrender soon.

The T-top was recovered in Witty's home -- and, remarkably, he actually posted a pic of the loot on his Instagram and bragged, "Piece of Paul walkers car, took it off a tow truck at a stop light."

Alleged criminals are dumb.

Witty and his pal are expected to be booked for felony grand theft and tampering with evidence.

Who's the bigger sicko? TMZ for posting pictures and videos day after day of the crash from every angle and who also paid those who provided them with the videos and pictures all for the sake of their ratings or these two fools who stole these car parts and took pictures of them?

THINK    

@damienevil - Im not sure how he would want his fans talking to each other. But I am sure if he came back after dying in such a horrific way, he wouldn't appreciate people having been so unkind to each other with him at the center of that treatment. And who cares if he is a "celebrity". No one should be unkind to one another over words or actions regarding a dead OR alive person.

@Cheeshke - I question EVERY "news" outlet. So should you - and everyone else. Don't allow the eye to fool the mind.

THINK    

@Cheeshke - If that part was "dislodged" as you theorize, why was it on the back of the tow truck? And if it WAS on the back of the tow truck, what was it attached to? The car? (a.k.a. crushed and burned pile of twisted metal) Questions are always the answer.

Tyrese took a small piece that was left at the scene, after it was cleaned up. There were likely many small pieces left there, including glass , that is often left behind at the scene of vehicle accidents. The difference is, that this piece was taken from the back of a tow truck, after the police had claimed it as evidence. It is no different than taking a piece of evidence fromt the trunk of a police car. Since the piece Tyrese took was not in police custody, it is not theft of any kind. It could be considered evidence, and if the police want it, they can order him to turn it over. However, it is certainly not theft. There is probably no point in explaining this. If you couldn't see the difference on your own, your probably are too dense to understand this.

What is with these idiots and crime. The goal of most criminals is to stay anonymous. You young new criminals are are truly stupid. You make it so easy for police to find you by showing everyone how ignorant you really are by advertising your exploits.

I like you guys at TMZc, but you can't call any of his fans "sickos", considering the overabundance of story posting you're doing about P.W. Dont forget to use discretion with each post.

That's probably a $5000 part. They can probably be charged with grand theft.
