BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – A man wanted in connection with a home break-in surrendered to police after seeing himself on television.

WAFB-TV (http://bit.ly/1FLv0Wf ) reports 30-year old Marques Wright surrendered to Baton Rouge police Tuesday and was arrested for a breaking and entering incident, which happened earlier this year.

A police report says Wright told officers he was turning himself in after seeing his photograph on a TV station.

Wright was also wanted for failure to appear in court on a simple robbery charge.

Bond has not been set. It was not immediately known if Wright has an attorney who could comment about the charges.
