Prosecutors have come down hard on two men who allegedly pillaged the Paul Walker fatal crash site.

Eighteen-year-old Jameson Witty and 25-year-old Anthony Janow were each charged Monday with felony grand theft of personal property and two misdemeanors.

They face up to 4 ½ years in jail if convicted, the Miami Herald reports.

Walker and driver Roger Rodas died on Nov. 30 when Rodas’s Porsche Carrera GT hit a light pole and tree and caught fire in the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Clarita.

Prosecutors claim Jameson and Janow stole a roof panel from the wrecked Porsche as it was being towed away. TMZ is reporting that Witty was caught on video taking the T-top roof off of the tow truck and then “bragged” about the theft by posting photos of the stolen wreckage on Instagram.

Witty is free on bail and Janow is expected to surrender Tuesday. It wasn’t immediately clear whether they had obtained lawyers.
