Paul Walker Crash

Scumbag Roof Thieves CAUGHT ON TAPE

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

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.

I was run off the road, hit a curb and flipped my Porsche 944 in 1993 and it landed upside down. My POR944 personal plate was stripped and a cop caught the thief, but didn't catch the one's that took my center Porsche emblem caps from my rims.,

When I was run off the road in my Porsche 944 in 1993, the car hit a curb and flipped, landing upside down in front of our local IHOP where after hour people hung out after the lounges closed. My POR944 personal tag was taken off my car and intercepted by a cop, but never found my Porsche emblem center caps on my rims.

to the people that say that the two men did nothing wrong "they are tampering with evidence to a serious crash that killed two people so yes in my eyes throw the book at them teach them and others a good lesson to not do stupid things like this" i mean come on say if your loved ones died in a bad crash and the police need to pice the car back together to see what happened i think you would hate some low life stealing the evidence.

They committed very serious crimes for which no one is an exception to the rules. Regardless of who died in that car, the parts stolen alone are worth thousands and belong to the owner/government. You can't charge anyone for their lack of empathy. That being said, the punishment fits the "crimes".
