Marcus Lenard Kagler, 40, surrendered to the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office on September 12, 2013. Kagler was listed on the Sheriff’s Office website’s Most Wanted page and has been the subject of two intense manhunts involving Washington Parish deputies and RCC canine teams.
Kagler, wanted for one count of Burglary of an Inhabited Dwelling and three counts of Failure to Appear, was asked why he decided to turn himself in. His reply, “I was tired of running and I knew you would catch me one day.”
Sheriff Randy Seal commented on Kagler’s surrender. “That was a good choice for him to make because we would have eventually caught him. I would recommend that any others on our Most Wanted list do the same thing because we are not going to cease our efforts to find them.”
