Escaped inmates seen in undated photo released by the Orange County Sheriff's Department in CaliforniaBy Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The last two fugitives who broke out a California jail last week were arrested on a tip from a man who saw their stolen van in the parking lot of a San Francisco Whole Foods supermarket, authorities said on Saturday, a day after a third escapee turned himself in. The manhunt that began after the three inmates escaped from an Orange County maximum-security jail on Jan. 22 came to an end when Hossein Nayeri, 37, and Jonathan Tieu, 20, were taken into custody in San Francisco's park district about 375 miles (604 km) north of the lockup, police said. A man approached police officers and pointed out a white van in the parking lot of a Whole Foods market that looked similar to the one the fugitives were reported to have stolen in Los Angeles following their escape, San Francisco police spokeswoman Grace Gatpandan said at a news conference.
