Two women who stole bags full of clothing from Forever 21 at the Clackamas Town Center were arrested after flipping their car while attempting to speed away from deputies, according to the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded to the mall at 3:05 p.m. Tuesday.

Investigators said two women, later identified as 19-year-old Nina Jackson and 20-year-old Chaniq Green, both of Vancouver, filled two bags with clothing and then left the store without paying.

A suspect vehicle description was provided by dispatchers to deputies as they responded to the call.

One of the responding deputies spotted the suspects driving northbound on Southeast Bob Schumacher Road and attempted to pull over the car.

Investigators said the driver sped away. The deputy initially lost sight of the car, but later found it flipped on its top in a driveway on the 11000 block of Southeast 92nd Court.

Deputies said Jackson and Green ran away from the crashed car, but were caught attempting to climb a nearby fence.

The women were taken to the hospital to be evaluated and were then booked into the Clackamas County Jail. Deputies said Green sustained minor injuries in the crash.

Green is facing charges of second-degree theft, hit and run resulting in injury, attempt to elude and reckless driving.

Jackson was arrested on charges of second-degree theft and interfering with a peace officer.

The stolen property was found in the car and returned to Forever 21, according to the sheriff's office.
