Georgia fugitive spotted again, authorities on the trail

(WTVM) -

Police believe they are getting closer to catching Chad Dasher—a Georgia inmate who escaped from the Tattnall County Jail in January.     

In February, Dasher was spotted in New Hope, Ala. The US Marshals double their original reward offer of $2,500 for information leading to Dasher, raising it to $5,000.

This past Monday, March 3, Dasher turned up in Glennville, Ga.

Yesterday, March 6, deputies say they found an SUV Dasher had stolen. It was behind a house on the outskirts of Glennville on Georgia highway 144.

Captain Kevin Keyfauver with the Tattnall Co. Sheriff's Office says of Dasher, "He's just a person who does what he wants, and manipulates things to get what he wants, and he needs to turn himself in before this gets worse."

Investigators are not sure if Dasher is on foot, or has stolen another vehicle. They are warning people in the area to lock their houses, and anything with a motor, so he will not be able to steal anything else.

Anyone with information about Dasher is asked to call the Tattnall County Sheriff's Office at 912-557-6777 or the U.S. Marshals Service Communications Center at 1-800-336-0102. Tips can also be emailed to usms.wanted@usdoj.gov. All information is confidential.
