Bank robbery suspect says he's innocent because he said 'please'

A Virginia man accused of robbing a bank Monday and posting two videos and a photo of the incident to his Instagram account reportedly said he is innocent because asking for the money is not a crime.

Dominyk Antonio Alfonseca, 23, told [sign in to see URL] in a jailhouse interview Wednesday that, "I decided to go to the bank…She gave me money, and I left." He said, "a robbery is going in and demanding something and taking the money. I didn't do that."

Police said Alfonseca walked into a TowneBank and handed the teller a note asking for $150,000 in bonds -- and included the word "please."

The note, which was posted on Instagram, read, "I need 150,000 bonds right NOW!! Please. 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 ends the letter with a smiley face.

He recorded the incident on his cellphone and posted videos and photo of the note online. Videos show the teller putting stacks of cash in a bag. Officers picked up Alfonseca 20 minutes after he left, carrying a gym bag full of money.

Alfonseca told the station that asking for money isn't a crime. He said he believes he'll be found innocent. He said he wouldn't have posted if he'd committed a crime.

{Interesting defence. I wonder what the legal definition of "bank robbery" is? I've never heard of anyone else pulling a stunt like this. Who [sign in to see URL] may even get away with it.}

"libido sciendi"..... the passion to know.
