Snapchat photo leads to arrest of Kearney pizza robbery suspect
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - A Snapchat photo with a caption referring to a robbery led Kearney police to arrest a man accused of stealing from a pizza delivery person.
Jaimee Williams, 26, Kearney, is charged with Robbery and Use of a Firearm to Commit a Felony.
Kearney police said Williams robbed a Domino’s delivery person at gunpoint June 24 at a residence in northeast Kearney. Court records indicate that Williams’ phone was used to order the pizza that night. When the delivery person arrived at the address a man with a handgun robbed him of $64 cash.
Court records also show that Williams posted a picture of himself on Snapchat with the caption, “Hit dis lick right quick.” Investigators said “hit a lick” is a slang term for robbery.
Investigators obtained a screen shot of the Snapchat post. When shown the screenshot, the victim identified Williams as the likely suspect. Investigators then served an arrest warrant on Williams Tuesday.
Williams is being held in the Buffalo County Detention Center on $200,000 bond. His preliminary hearing is scheduled July 29. The robbery and weapons charges against Williams are both felonies which carry max penalties of 50 years in prison for each conviction.
