CLOVIS, Calif. (KMPH) -

Two men were arrested on Friday afternoon after swiping hundreds of dollars worth of jeans from a Clovis department store, police said.

Jain Huipes,23, and 19-year-old Daniel Jimenez, both of Fresno, were arrested for commercial burglary.

Police say the two men stuffed $325 worth of blue jeans from the Kohl's department store in the Sierra Vista Mall before running out of the store.

They then got into a car and drove southbound on Clovis Avenue.

While driving, however, a bag was tossed out of the window, said Janet Stoll-Lee, spokeswoman of the Clovis Police Department.

An officer found the bag full of stolen jeans and returned the merchandise to the store. 

Huipes and Jimenez were eventually found by police after residents in the vicinity of Lansing and Minnewawa avenues reported a suspicious vehicle in their neighborhood.

A California Highway Patrol helicopter then hovered overhead over the neighborhood while Clovis police and Sheriff's deputies took the suspects into custody.
