POCATELLO — A man with a knife frightened customers at a Pocatello gas station Saturday morning.

Police were called to Chevron on South 5th around 6 a.m. after customers reported a man was waving a knife frantically and yelling at patrons.

Thomas Farmer, 55, allegedly made threats to the clerk and customers, calling them “gang bangers” and saying, “I will kill you gangsters.”

Farmer was arrested and charged with aggravated battery. A preliminary hearing court date is scheduled for June 19.
