A robbery suspect in Virginia Beach, Virginia, may have implicated himself by reportedly posting video and a note he passed to a bank teller asking for money on Instagram. 

Dominyk Antonio Alfonseca, 23, allegedy walked up to a bank teller at TowneBank Monday afternoon and passed her a note that asked for $150,000, "please," reports WAVY.

In an interview with from jail, Alfonseca explained, "I decided to go to the bank ... She gave me money, and I left."

The note reads: "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."

As he was committing the crime, the suspect took out his cellphone and began recording it, according to police. He captured two videos of the robbery, which show the teller putting money into a bag, and posted them to his Instagram account, along with a photo of the note. Here is the video footage that was captured from the bank:

"I posted the video on my Instagram," Alfonseca continued in the interview. "I videotaped it. If it was a robbery, I didn't think I would videotape it, post the picture of the letter and do that all to come to jail."

Alfonseca said he moved to Virginia from California two weeks ago and that he is a rapper. He continues to plead innocent and says he doesn't believe even police think what he did was a crime.

"For real, I didn't even do it for money, you understand? I didn't do for that money. I knew my pic would get exposure," Alfonseca told USA Today. 

The suspect was arrested less than half an hour after the incident. Authorities say they found the cash in a gym bag. 

During the course of his jail interview, Alfonseca reportedly insisted he asked for the money "nicely" and that the teller handed it to him, which he says proves his innocence. He also drifted off topic often.

"I don't know what it is, if there's chips or whatever that they're putting in people's brains or I have one --i f I have one -- I don't know how they have it, how I have it, but people know, like, before I do something what I'm thinking, or they would post it on Instagram," he said.
