Twiggs County Deputies need your help in finding this man, Chad Everette Dasher. The search for Dasher began at 1:44 Thursday morning when a deputy was dispatched to investigate a suspicious person call on Highway 96.

When in route the deputy found a truck that had slid off the road into a ditch here on hwy 96. The deputy, assuming it was an accident, pulled over to investigate, he couldn't locat the driver but a quick run of the license plate revealed that the truck was stolen.

Investigators in Long County say Dasher stole the vehicle.

"Mr. Dasher is apparently a career criminal. He has about 6 or 8 warrants from different agencies throughout the state on him from burglary down to escape. He's also an escapee. He's supposed to be violent suppose to have had a gun."

Chief Boney says the Twiggs Sheriffs Office believes Dasher may have already left the county but due to the suspects alleged violent nature the search continues: "Since 2:00 this morning we've been looking for him I came down this morning and looked for him and sheriff mitchum is out looking for him right now with the other deputies"

If you see Chad Dasher call 911. Do not approach him, he is considered armed and dangerous.
