A San Francisco bay area man was arrested for armed robbery because he posed for Snapchat selfie with a victim.
NBC Bay Area has the details:
The bizarre incident occurred Wednesday at Lovers Point Park in Pacific Grove, police said. Victor Almanza-Martinez, 18, of Castroville, and two other men approached four victims and allegedly robbed them of their belongings, including keys to a 2013 black Chrysler 200.
The suspects fled in the Chrysler, which is still missing, but not before Almanza-Martinez and one of the female victims exchanged Snapchat information and posed for a selfie together, police said.
The selfie was apparently a break in the case, police said, adding that it helped them track down Almanza-Martinez.
The suspect was subsequently arrested and charged with armed robbery, kidnapping, possession of stolen property, conspiracy, violation of probation and gang enhancements. Almanza-Martinez is being held at the Monterey County Jail with bail set at $170,000.
