Authorities have booked a second person for allegedly stealing a part of the car that crashed in Santa Clarita, Calif., killing Fast & Furious actor Paul Walker, and his friend, Roger Rodas, on Nov. 30. Anthony Janow, 25, was booked and released on $60,000 bail, after he surrendered on Tuesday at the San Fernando courthouse, authorities said, according to an Associated Press report.
According to the police, Janow and 18-year-old Jameson Witty, who was arrested from his home in the Tujunga neighborhood of Los Angeles on Saturday, stole a part -- a red T-top roof pane -- of the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, while it was being towed from the accident scene Saturday night. Witty was released on a $20,000 bail.
Witty was caught on video stealing the Porsche part and he even posted pictures of the stolen wreckage on Instagram. He later apologized for the theft, claiming that he was not thinking about the consequences at the time, and his intention was to make a memorial out of it for his childhood idol.
The officials have filed criminal charges of felony grand theft of personal property, tampering with evidence and resisting, obstructing and delaying a peace officer against both the suspects. They face up to more than four years in jail if convicted.
Paul Walker, who starred in all but one of the six Fast & Furious blockbuster franchise was killed after the Porsche he was traveling in with Rodas crashed into a light pole and burst into flames in Santa Clarita, about 27 miles north of Hollywood.
