Thanks to social media, the Madera County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man Friday wanted for allegedly brandishing a knife at CVS Pharmacy employees in Oakhurst.
After the sheriff’s office posted a photo on Facebook, asking for tips, users identified the man as Nathaniel Follette. One person even offered up the street where he lives.
The sheriff’s office claims Follette is the man who brandished the knife on Friday at 6:30 p.m at CVS.
Within hours, Follette was arrested at Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino. He’s expected to face charges related to the CVS incident, and was booked into the jail on suspicion of unrelated allegations, including possessing stolen property, violating a criminal protective order and resisting arrest, the sheriff’s office said.
