On Tuesday, July 5, at 6:15 a.m., a Fillmore County correction officer was unable to account for a prisoner during breakfast wake up. It was then determined that this prisoner, 19-year-old Dylan Bathke, had escaped custody. 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 sheriff did not believe there was a public safety threat to the general public.

Bathke was apprehended the same day at 4:20 p.m. in the City of Rochester. Members of the Rochester Police Department and the Southeast Minnesota Violent Crime Enforcement Team made the arrest. Bathke was taken into custody without incident.

The Fillmore County Sheriff’s Office will continue this investigation to fully explain how this happened. They will review policies and procedures, as well as review the facility’s operational aspects. They will strive to assure the safety of the public and prevent any future breeches in the security of their operations.
