INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (March 18, 2016) — A fugitive drug dealer that was mistakenly released from the Indiana Department of Correction on Monday has surrendered to police.

Levi Garrett, 32, surrendered to deputies in downtown Indianapolis around 10 p.m. Thursday evening.

In connection to the investigation, deputies also arrested Nathaniel Tharp, 18, and Brent Walker, 20, both on charges of possession of marijuana (Level 6 felony), dealing in marijuana (Level 5 Felony), possession of a controlled substance (Level 6 Felony), and dealing a controlled substance (Level 5 Felony) at an apartment complex at County Line and Combs Road on the city’s south side.

Sheriff Layton said, “Marion County Sheriff’s Deputies left no stone unturned in the search for Levi Garrett, and I am very proud of their work in convincing him to surrender. Additionally, they made Indianapolis safer by getting two more alleged drug dealers off of the street, and behind bars. The investigation into Garrett’s release is ongoing, but we are committed to continue work with our partners in criminal justice to address the information technology issues that face us.”
