A California teenager was arrested Thursday for stealing a piece of the wreckage left from Saturday’s car crash that killed actor Paul Walker and Roger Rodas.
Jameson Witty, 18, was arrested Thursday morning at his California home after an investigation led police to his doorstep, officials announced Thursday afternoon.
Police arrived shortly after Witty posted pictures of the wreckage he obtained on Facebook and Instagram.
The wrecked Porsche Carrera GT was being hauled by a flat-bed tow truck hours after the wreck that claimed the movie star and friend Roger Rodas, who was driving the vehicle when it crashed.
The tow truck stopped at a red light and a male jumped out of a car following it to grab a piece of the car – he then hopped back into his car and sped away, according to police.
A search warrant was executed Thursday at Witty’s home, police found the stolen car panel – a part from the sports car’s roof – and arrested him on the spot.
He was was charged with felony grand theft and tampering with evidence, he is being held on $20,000 bail.
