RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A suspect, who was on the run for more than a week, has surrendered when he saw his wanted picture on social media.

Police said the man stole an electronic device from a fire station on Semmes Avenue more than a week ago, just moments after the engine went out on a call.  Officers then said he pedaled away from the scene on his bike.

Richmond Police put photos of the man on Twitter and Facebook.  The suspect saw the picture and turned himself in.
