VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — Authorities say a man who posted a photo and videos of himself on Instagram robbing a Virginia Beach bank has pleaded guilty.
Multiple media outlets report that 24-year-old Dominyk Antonio Alfonseca pleaded guilty to one count of robbery Monday in Virginia Beach Circuit Court.
Police said Alfonseca walked into a TowneBank in May 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. Officers arrested Alfonseca shortly after the incident, carrying a gym bag full of money.
In a jailhouse interview, Alfonseca told WAVY-TV (http://bit.ly/1EQDCNB ) in May that he didn’t think asking for money was a crime.
