The U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force is now offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a Georgia jail escapee.

Chad Everette Dasher has recently been the focus of extensive manhunts in Texas and Alabama but has managed to elude capture.

Dasher escaped from the Tattnall County Jail Jan. 24, when he executed an elaborate plan to breach jail security and escaped through the jail's roof.

Dasher was being held at the Tattnall County Jail on multiple charges for a multi-county crime spree that occurred in Georgia in 2012. Dasher is a 5'9" white male and weighs 140 pounds. He has green eyes and brown hair. 

Dasher has an extensive criminal history to include arrests for burglary, firearms, fraud, narcotics, resisting arresting and traffic offenses.  Dasher has a history of fleeing from law enforcement. He is considered armed and dangerous.

Any information pertaining to Dasher should be relayed to 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.  

A $5,000.00 reward is being offered for information that leads to Dasher's arrest.  In order to collect the reward, tipsters should be prepared to give their name and contact information to law enforcement officials manning the tip lines. Again, Dasher is an extreme flight risk and is considered armed and dangerous.
