Robber arrested after police find selfie tying him to the crime

COLUMBIA (WZTV/WACH)-- A Kentucky man was arrested after police found a selfie in his cell phone of him wearing the same mask he wore when robbing a store.

Kevin Lawson, 28, robbed the Copes Market in Corbin, Kentucky wearing a white mask and white gloves. He escaped with rifles, guns, cigs and dip all stuffed into a duffle bag.

Although Lawson wore gloves to keep from leaving prints, he neglected to delete the picture connecting him to the crime.
