A man has been arrested on suspicion of stealing debris from the site of the car crash that killed Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas on Saturday, CNN reports. A second suspect is expected to surrender shortly.
After the on-scene traffic investigation wrapped up on Saturday, several vehicles followed the flat-bed tow truck that was transporting the remains of the Porsche Carrera GT, according to the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department. While stopped at a red light, the tow truck driver noticed a male exit a vehicle and grab a piece of debris off the truck bed. "The male drove away with the stolen vehicle part," the police report states.
