Actor Sean Penn is convinced whoever stole his car in April (03) is also responsible for making a string of phone threats to him.

His BUICK car and two registered guns stashed inside were taken from outside a diner in Berkeley, California, while Penn was eating out.

The car and one of the weapons have since been returned - and Penn is sure the incidents are linked to a series of disturbing phone threats.

He says, "I've had some very serious threats that have come my way. I know exactly who did it."

Police reports claim the movie star was granted a concealed weapons permit in 2001 following the threats.
