A man labeled an armed and dangerous escapee is no longer believed to be in Twiggs County,
Chad Everette Dasher, who fled the Tattnall County jail, is accused of stealing a car in Ludowici that turned up wrecked on Ga. 96 before 2 a.m. Thursday.
Nobody in Twiggs County ever laid eyes on this guy, said Col. Billy Boney, chief deputy of the Twiggs County Sheriffs Office. We have some information that Mr. Dasher is no longer in our county, but headed to Alabama.
Authorities issued a lookout Thursday after getting a report of a suspicious person on Ga. 96 near Faulks Chapel Baptist Church and finding the car Dasher allegedly stole in Long County.
Dasher, who has multiple warrants for his arrest, is said to have violent tendencies and is armed and dangerous, Boney said in the original lookout.
Dasher is a white man, 5 feet 9 inches tall and about 140 pounds.
If you see him, use extreme caution and call authorities.
