Louisville robber caught after using Snapchat on stolen phone


Today, we have a new contender for the title of “World’s Dumbest Robber.” Latroy Gaston, a 20-year-old Louisville resident, was indicted on five counts of first-degree robbery after police caught him using SnapChat on a phone he stole. D’oh.

From WAVE 3:

Police say 20-year-old Latroy Gaston Jr. is responsible for multiple robberies this year.

Officers say he entered someone’s home and demanded money, taking at least one phone, earlier this year. Later one of the robbery victim’s friends contacted her saying someone was using Snapchat on her phone, so she gave the picture to police.

FYI, this is probably the only time in which it’s acceptable to screenshot snaps.
