By WLOX Staff

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - A man wanted for prostitution in Jackson County actually turned himself in to Biloxi Police Monday on an unrelated charge.

Police say 48-year-old Harry Mark Gonsoulin, Junior runs an escort service, and that his prostitutes made up most of those arrested in a recent sting operation. After that November 5th bust, a warrant was issued for Gonsoulin's arrest.

Unaware of the prostitution warrant, investigators say Gonsoulin turned himself in to the Biloxi Police Department November 16th for an unrelated charge. After he posted bail, Gonsoulin was arrested once again and taken to the Jackson County Adult Detention Center.

He's charged with one count of Prostitution.
