Two charged with theft from Walker crash car

Two men have been charged with stealing from Paul Walker's death crash car.

Jameson Witty and Anthony Janow stand accused of taking parts from the wrecked Porsche Carrera GT which 'Fast and Furious' star Paul and his business partner, Roger Rodas, crashed and died in on November 30.

Deputy District Attorney Sera Boyadjian, said both men face charges of one felony count of grand theft of personal property and two misdemeanour counts of destroying evidence and "resisting, obstructing and delaying a peace officer."

Prosecutors claim the men took a roof panel from the tow truck which was carrying the wrecked car after it stopped at a red light.

Prosecutors also say the men had been warned by a Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy not to tamper with the crime scene.

If they are convicted, both Jameson and Anthony could face a maximum of four and a half years in jail.

After his alleged irresponsible behaviour, Jameson, 18, is said to have posted pictures of the stolen car part on Instagram.

Since Paul and Roger died in the accident - when their vehicle smashed into a pole in Santa Clarita, California - thousands of tributes have been paid to them both by families, friends and associates.

Paul's close pal, Vin Diesel - who played Dominic Toretto in the 'Fast and Furious' film franchise, opposite his character Brian O'Conner - wrote: "I wish you could see the world right now... and the profound impact, your full life has had on it, on Us... on me...

"I will always love you Brian, as the brother you were... on and off screen. (sic)"

Yesterday an unofficial memorial rally was staged in the area where the pair tragically lost their lives
