Paul Walker Crash

Scumbag Roof Thieves CAUGHT ON TAPE

12/7/2013 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

120613_paul_walker_theif_launch
Paul Walker's fans RECORDED FOOTAGE of the scumbags who stole pieces of the wrecked Porsche GT the actor died in ... and the video, obtained by TMZ, could help prosecutors put the bad guys behind bars.

The video -- shot by fans who were at the scene to pay tribute to the actor -- captured the moments when two men ran over to the Porsche, which was on a tow truck, and ripped off pieces of the roof.

The crooks then sprinted away from the car ... as the fans screamed at them to stop and honked their  car horn to alert other people about the crime.

We broke the story ... cops were called and quickly arrested one of the suspects. The other man fled the state, but cops say they know who he is and expect the guy to turn himself in soon.

The men will most likely be charged with felony grand theft and tampering with evidence -- and if convicted, they could both face some serious jail time.

This incident could have been avoided if the wrecker had a simple police escort (front & back). They could have used two of the numerous law enforcement officers standing around talking that weren't critical to the scene. There are always going to be people that want a souvenir or something to sell from a highly publicized celebrity death. It can bring out the worst in people.

The New Improved Sock Puppet    

TMZ refers to a few punks as s***bags while they would have paid double or triple digit K's for pics inside the burning car, offered with an apology of course. . No one is exploiting more or making more money on site hits than TMZ with it's in relenting barrage of stories about this.

I have to agree with some of these comments....there's a lot of people that would have loved the chance to grab a piece of that wreck, to brag about having, to sell it, whatever. These kids made a dumb move, jail time though? Nahh And I love Tyrese! But he posted online a piece of the wreckage he grabbed, why is it okay for him but these dumb kids could go to prison!?

FUT THE SHUCK UP    

TMZ is like the villager in Salem shouting "witch!". These young fools make a stupid decision, but STOP trying to portray them as murderers or something. TMZ is irresponsible and should be ashamed.
