U.S. Marshals are searching for a young man who they say is racking up a long rap sheet, and they are looking for information that can lead to his arrest.

Authorities are looking for Saiku Bah, also known as Sully Koroma, who is wanted in connection with a series of residential burglaries in Prince George's County.

Bah, 23, and others are suspected of forcing their way into homes in the Hyattsville area in November 2012, police said.

Matt Burke, supervisory inspector for the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, said Bah has numerous run-ins with police in Prince George's and Montgomery counties, including for assault, resisting arrest, drugs, theft, robbery and burglary.

"Bah and several other young men [are] trying to act like thugs with complete disregard for others," Burke said. "They clearly need to learn a lesson about living in a community and need to be taken into custody."

Bah, who is originally from the West African country Sierra Leone, had been living in Takoma Park. He also has associates and history in Silver Spring, Hyattsville and Northwest Washington.

Bah has multiple tattoos on both arms and his chest. He is listed as 5-foot-6 and 150 pounds.

Anyone with information regarding Bah's whereabouts can call the task force at (301) 489-1717.

Since 2008, The Washington Examiner's "Most Wanted" feature has led directly to the capture or surrender of 50 murderers, armed robbers, kidnappers, sex offenders and drug dealers.

At least nine of the fugitives were wanted for a killing or had previously been convicted of a homicide.

The Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, run by the U.S. Marshals Service, is composed of 30 federal, state and local agencies from Baltimore to Norfolk.
