FRESNO COUNTY, CA (KMJ) — A Clovis man has been arrested for molesting a child under 14, and the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office believes he may have victimized others.
Nathaniel Stephen Myers, 38, has been booked into the Fresno County Jail on six counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14.
During an investigation, detectives say they learned Myers has molested multiple children under the age of 14 during the last 18 years.
The Sheriff’s Office says Myers works as a local landscaper, and has been working at an unnamed Clovis church.
A further search of Myers’ background revealed he completed the police academy in 2016.
He tried applying for employment at several local law enforcement agencies, including the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.
He was disqualified for failing to meet the minimum hiring standards.
The Sheriff’s Office says his disqualification was not related to the charges he is currently facing as this is new information.
Detectives believe there is a strong possibility Myers has victimized other children, but those cases have gone unreported.
If you have information of criminal activity involving Myers, please contact Lieutenant Brandon Pursell at (559) 600-8029.
