U.S. Marshals are looking for 27-year-old Maurice Anderson of Milwaukee – a man considered armed and dangerous.

"Does not appear to be changing his ways," said the marshal on the case. "He has a criminal history that involves theft, entry to locked vehicle, operation of a motor vehicle without owner’s consent, possession of THC – he also has an arrest for armed robbery."

A warrant was issued for Anderson's arrest one year ago on Feb. 11, 2022 when he did not show up for court.

"He had a tattoo on his upper right arm – the word ‘MOE’ with ‘1995’ around it," the marshal said.

Anderson is charged with possession of a firearm by a felon and intention to deliver cocaine. Authorities discourage anyone from helping Anderson. 

"They could potentially face charges of aiding or harboring a fugitive," said the marshal.
