A homeless man from San Francisco who pointed police toward two Orange County inmates who had escaped from jail will get the lion’s share of a $150,000 reward set up for their successful capture, the Orange County Board of Supervisors voted. The Orange County Board of Supervisors awarded Matthew HayChapman $100,000, said Jean Pasco, a county spokeswoman. Two Target employees and a man whose van was stolen by the escapees will split the remaining $50,000. Hossein Nayeri, Jonathan Tieu and Bac Duong escaped from Central Men’s Jail in Santa Ana on January 22 and were the subject of a state wide manhunt for days. Hay-Chapman spotted Nayeri and Tieu on January 28 in San Francisco and recognised their stolen white GMC van from news reports. He pointed them out to police officers in the area, leading to their arrest.
