PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Two young Vancouver women face a number of different charges after they allegedly stuffed clothes in a bag at Forever 21, then crashed their getaway car in the driveway of a nearby home.

Nina Jackson and Chaniq Green were taken into custody Tuesday afternoon after leading a Clackamas County deputy on a high speed chase away from the Clackamas Town Center.

Allegedly they shoplifted clothes from the Forever 21 store in the mall, then tried to get away once police were called. When Green flipped their car onto a driveway in the 11000 block of SE 92nd Court, they got out and began running.

They were arrested as they tried to jump a nearby fence, the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said.

Green, 20, was charged with 2nd-degree theft, injury hit-and-run, 2 counts of attempting to elude a police officer and reckless driving.

Jackson, 19, faces 2nd-degree theft and interfering with a peace officer charges.

The merchandise was recovered and returned to Forever 21, authorities said.
