WORTHINGTON -- The Buffalo Ridge Drug Task Force (BRDTF) is asking for the public's help in rounding up a drug crime fugitive.

The drug charges have both prior conviction and gun enhancements.

Saysirisanh is an Asian male, 180 pounds and is 5 feet 6 inches tall. Appel said Saysirisanh has lived in the area for many years.
