Madera police arrested the same man twice last week.
Police said Derek King, 31, of Madera stole tools Friday morning from General Builders Supply at 1808 Howard Rd. King fled with the tools when the store clerk attempted to confront him.
The clerk recognized King, having seen him featured on the Madera Police Department’s Facebook page Jan. 4 following his arrest for two outstanding warrants.
Officers saw King leave the area. After a short chase, he was found still in possession of the stolen tools and methamphetamine.
Never miss a local story.
King was charged with interfering with an officer, possession of a controlled substance and violation of parole.
