The doctor wanted by the Sandy Springs Police Department for allegedly using another name to obtain a U.S. Passport has been arrested in southern Florida.
U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Kelly Thrasher in Miami Wednesday evening, Sandy Springs police said in a news release. The operation was coordinated with the agency's Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force.
U.S. Marshals received a tip which led them to a Days Inn Hotel in the South Beach area of Miami.
Thrasher located in the hotel room and arrested without incident. The doctor had about $30,000 in cash with him at the time of his arrest. He's currently awaiting extradition at the Metro West Detention Center in Miami.
Sandy Springs police issued arrest warrants for Trasher on identity fraud and forgery in the second degree charges after he allegedly obtained the passport under another name.
The doctor initially arranged to turn himself in to Sandy Springs detectives earlier this week, but did not show up at the meeting.
Thrasher was indicted in early 2013 on child molestation, sexual battery and aggravated sexual battery following a police investigation that started in November 2012.
Earlier this year, Thrasher was arrested and charged with practicing medicine without a license. That charge stems from complaints that Thrasher was seeing patients in his office, which violates the Georgia State Licensing Board's suspension of his license pending the disposition of the earlier cases.
