Police: Man's Instagram posts of bank robbery led to arrest

Posted: Updated:
   
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - A man accused of robbing a Virginia Beach bank posted two videos and a photo of the incident to his Instagram account.
   
Police tell WAVY-TV that 23-year-old Dominyk Antonio Alfonseca walked into a TowneBank on Monday and handed the teller a note asking for $150,000 in bonds - and including the word "please." He recorded the incident on his cellphone and posted videos and photo of the note online. Videos show the teller putting stacks of cash in a bag.
   
Officers picked up Alfonseca 20 minutes after he left, carrying a gym bag full of money.
   
In a jailhouse interview, Alfonseca told the station Wednesday that asking for money isn't a crime. Alfonseca says he believes he'll be found innocent. He says he wouldn't have posted if he'd committed a crime.
   
It was unclear whether he had a lawyer to contact for further comment.
