Marshals offer rewards for escaped Georgia inmates

The U.S. Marshals Service is offering two $2,500 rewards for information that leads to the recapture of two men who escaped from a Georgia jail.

Chad Everette Dasher and Raymond Thomas Smith escaped from the Tattnall County Jail on Jan. 24 after executing what officials said was "an elaborate plan to breach jail security and escaped through the jail’s roof."

They are considered armed and extremely dangerous. Dasher was being held on multiple charges for a multi-county crime spree that occurred in Georgia in 2012. Dasher is a white male, 5-foot-9 and 140 pounds. He has green eyes and brown hair. Dasher has an extensive criminal history, including arrests for burglary, firearms, fraud, narcotics, resisting arresting and traffic offenses, according to the U.S. Marshals Service. Smith was being held on multiple counts of aggravated child molestation. Smith is a white male, 6-foot-1 and 200 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes. In addition to Smith’s arrest for sex offenses, he has prior arrests for assault, firearms, and obstruction. If you have any information about either man, call 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.
