A man wanted on felony warrants totaling $1 million was arrested Tuesday morning after he tried to break into a car in Clovis on the 1500 block of Chennault Avenue.

Neighbors yelled at the man, who ran. Clovis police found him near Jimbo's, in the 400 block of Herndon Avenue.

Antonio Hernandez, 27, of Fresno was arrested on suspicion of vehicle theft, receiving stolen property and possession of burglary tools. His outstanding warrants include having stolen vehicles and property, police said.
