Chad Dasher
Tattnall fugitive, Dasher, apprehended on Tuesday

From Enterprise staff reports

Fugitive Chad Dasher was arrested early Tuesday morning in Tattnall County after being on the loose since he and another inmate (since apprehended) escaped from the Tattnall County Jail on January 24.  
Law enforcement has closed in on Dasher several times over the last few months, but he managed to elude capture. The manhunt for Dasher is not the first time authorities have had to chase Dasher. In 2012, Dasher led law enforcement on a similar excursion that resulted in a Claxton Police Dept. patrol car crash with a GSP vehicle.
On Monday, Tattnall County was called to assist Long County officers in an instance where some vehicles were rammed and a house was struck with a vehicle Dasher was in, reported Tattnall County Investigator Kevin Keyfauver. Law enforcement followed the evidence back to Tattnall County where Dasher was found at a pond house off John Brewton Road.
Tuesday’s chase ended with Dasher fleeing from the home to a nearby pond where he went for a swim trying to elude deputies. “He swam for about 30 minutes,” Keyfauver said. “He came out peacefully. Everything went well.”
