MIDDLEBURG – The Clay County Sheriff’s Office assisted Florida Probation and Parole in arresting a man who was seen on Facebook brandishing a firearm.

Zachary James McKenzie, 22, of Middleburg, then was arrested last Friday for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of marijuana, cocaine and drug paraphernalia, as well as intent to sell or manufacture cocaine and violation of parole.

McKenzie apparently had a picture of himself holding a weapon, which was in violation of his parole, CCSO said. Parole officers searched his house and found a 9 mm handgun, as well as the drugs.

McKenzie was remanded to the Clay County Jail without bond.
