    A Virginia man accused of robbing a bank posted two videos and a photo of the incident to Instagram.

    Dominyk Antonio Alfonseca, 23, walked into a TowneBank in Virginia Beach on Monday and passed the teller a note to "please" hand over $150,000 (£98,000) in bonds.

    The note allegedly read: "Police take 3 to 4 minutes to get here, I would appreciate if you Ring the alarm a minute after I am gone… make sure the money doesn't BLOW UP ON MY WAY OUT. :)".

    He recorded the incident on his mobile phone and posted videos and a photo of the note online.

    The clips show the teller putting stacks of cash in a bag.

    Officers picked up Alfonseca soon after he left the bank, carrying a gym bag full of money.

    In a jailhouse interview, the accused told WAVY-TV that asking for money is not a crime.

    Alfonseca said he would not have posted the images if he had done anything wrong.

    That guy is awesome! Gotta love his justification. He might just get away with it since asking for money isn't a crime. The problem is he seems to acknowledge the holdup by mentioning the alarm and the cops. Why would they call cops if not for a robbery?

    and the stupid teller did.
