A man charged with a home break-in in April was arraigned Wednesday by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke, according to an affidavit.

A man told police he met Marquise Deandre Price on the online dating website Tagged, where Price was posing as a woman. When the two met, the resident of the home confronted Price about lying, and they got into an argument, police said. The resident of the home told police he believed Price went to his home, threw a brick through a window and stole a television, Playstation video game system and stereo equipment.

Police later found the stolen equipment was pawned the same day it was stolen.

Also arraigned by Cooke, in an unrelated case, was Joses Barragan, 29, for five outstanding warrants out of Temple. Barragan was wanted for the felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon and assault by strangulation. His bond for those two offenses was $75,000 and $100,000.
