The three suspects allegedly robbed a group of four people and then stole their car.

Before fleeing in the stolen vehicle, Pacific Grove Police say Almanza-Martinez posed for a selfie with one of the female victims. Police haven’t released the photo, but here’s a reenactment:

Once Almanza-Martinez posted the selfie to Snapchat, the victim turned over the photo to police, who promptly arrested him.
