A Virginia man was arrested on Monday after walking into a bank and stealing $150,000 cash in order to post it on Instagram.
Dominyk Alfonseca however, insists he did not rob the bank … but made a simple request that was granted by the cashier.
‘For real, I didn’t even do it for money, you understand? I didn’t do that for money. I knew my page would get exposure,’ he told WVEC on Wednesday while seated inside a Virginia Beach Corrections facility cell on Wednesday.
He continued, ‘No threats in it. If you see me in the video or whatever like that, I have a shirt on – no weapon, no mask – and she passes me the money. I don’t want to get her in trouble. Maybe she made a mistake. Maybe she made a mistake, and I didn’t make a mistake.’
Alfonseca posted videos of him handing over a note (below) to the cashier and the cashier handing over wads of cash. He was arrested 30 minutes after he left the bank with the loot.
When asked why he did it, Alfonseca reportedly said it was to get the attention of some unspecified people who had been stealing ideas from his brain for the past several years. Commenting on the way he was arrested, he said, ‘For real, I felt like I got robbed, ’cause they gave me the money. Then, the police robbed my brain.’
