A Glouster man that has been on the run from the Athens County Sheriff’s Office since September has been taken into custody.

Brad Kasler, 26, was sought for warrants out of Athens County and was captured with the help of the Glouster Police Department and the Athens County Prosecutor’s Office on Tuesday.

Kasler was taken into custody after investigators received information that he was at a residence on Route 78 in Hollister.

Investigators had visited the home when they were initially searching for Kasler, but did not find him there at the time. The sheriff’s office released a picture and description of Kasler to the public on Sept. 29 in an attempt to obtain more information.

“Kasler has eluded officers’ attempts to take him into custody … by using a 4-wheeler (which is) yellow in color to escape,” a news release stated at the time.

Warrants out for Kasler included charges for aggravated possession of drugs, receiving stolen property and failure to appear, among other charges, according to previous Messenger reporting.

Law enforcement surrounded the residence and Kasler attempted to flee the home.

“He climbed out of a bedroom window and we caught him without any further incident,” said Athens County Sheriff Rodney Smith.
