A Kentucky man is behind bars after police were able to tie him to a robbery thanks to a selfie the man took of himself wearing the same mask he wore when robbing the store. 

According to the Smoking Gun, 28-year-old Kevin Lawson robbed the Copes Market in Corbin, Kentucky, wearing a white mask and white gloves. He was able to escape with rifles, guns, cigs and dip all stuffed into a duffel bag. 

Lawson was smart enough to wear gloves to keep from leaving prints and a mask to keep from security cameras seeing his face. 

He wasn't smart enough to erase the selfie he took of himself on his cell phone showing him wearing the robbery mask. 

Officers reviewed his cell phone, eventually finding the picture which tied him to the crime.
