LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Authorities say they've arrested an 18-year-old accused of stealing part of the Porsche that "Fast & Furious" star Paul Walker was in when he was killed in a crash.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says Jameson Witty was arrested at his LA-area home. A statement from the agency Thursday says another suspect who is 25 years old is outside California and arranging to surrender.

The Sheriff's Department says the wreckage of the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT was being towed away after Saturday's fatal crash when someone got out of a car following the tow truck, grabbed a part and drove away.

Detectives say they found the Porsche's roof panel while searching a home in Canyon Country, a community north of Los Angeles.

It wasn't clear if Witty has an attorney, and no phone listings for family could be found.
