After searches Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, an “armed and dangerous” fugitive who ran from U.S. Marshals out of Georgia was found in Jasper County, according to multiple Jasper County Sheriff’s Office news releases.
The first search began Friday afternoon in the Levy area, an initial release at 2:40 p.m. Friday said. Deputies searched for the man throughout the afternoon with help from other agencies, a helicopter, and K-9 teams.
The search was suspended that night, an 8:25 p.m. news release said.
Law enforcement continued searching for the man Saturday morning, located him, and took him into custody, according to a Saturday afternoon news release.
Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Maj. Bob Bromage said their department’s bloodhound team helped with the search.
The man was described only as a white male in his 30s wearing a black tank top and blue jeans. None of the releases from Jasper County Sheriff’s Office does not include the man’s name or what he is charged with.
