LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man has been indicted for robbery after police nabbed him when he used the Snapchat account on a stolen phone.

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.
