The U.S. Marshals Service has issued a reward for the arrest of two Tattnall County, Georgia escaped prisoners.

Officials say Chad Everette Dasher and Raymond Thomas Smith executed an elaborate escape plan, successfully breaching Tattnall County Jail security and escaping through the roof on January 24, 2014.  

Dasher was behind bars for multiple charges for a multi-county crime spree in Georgia in 2012. Dasher is described as a white male, 5'9" tall 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. He has a history of fleeing from law enforcement.

Smith was in jail for multiple counts of aggravated child molestation. He is described as a white male, 6'1" tall 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.

Both escapees are considered armed and extremely dangerous
