Today, Tuesday July 5th at 06:15 AM, a Fillmore County correction officer, during breakfast wake up, was unable to account for a prisoner. It was then determined that this prisoner had escaped custody. The prisoner is identified as 19-year-old Dylan Bathke. Bathke was being held on the charges of Motor Vehicle Theft, 2nd Degree Assault, Terroristic Threats, and Fleeing a Police Officer in a Motor Vehicle.

The Fillmore County Sheriff’s Office is currently working on locating and apprehending Bathke. The Sheriff does not believe there is a public safety threat to the general public. The Fillmore County Sheriff’s Offices request that anyone with information on the whereabouts of Bathke please contact our office at 507-765-3874.

I will do an update to this press release at 4:00 pm today or sooner if there is more information to release.

Thank you.

Sheriff Tom Kaase
