Middle Georgians should be on the lookout for an escaped inmate who could be in Twiggs County. At about 1:45 a.m. Thursday, a suspicious person was reported on Ga. 96 near Faulks Chapel Baptist Church in the 3100 block of the highway.
The deputy responding to the call drove up on a wrecked, stolen vehicle that is linked to an escapee from the Tattnall County Sheriffs Office.
Chad Everette Dasher is accused of stealing the car in Ludowici in Long County in southeast Georgia.
There are multiple warrants for his arrest.
He has violent tendencies and is armed and dangerous, said Col. Billy Boney, chief deputy of the Twiggs County Sheriffs Office.
Deputies searched along Ga. 96 and the surrounding countryside but did not find Dasher.
Sheriff Darren Mitchum said that although no contact has been made with the fugitive, he is thought to be in the area.
Dasher is a white man, 5 feet 9 inches tall and about 140 pounds.
If you see him, use extreme caution and call authorities.
