There's something SO gratifying about seeing an idiot busted for a crime because they couldn't resist taking a selfie. 



28-year-old Kevin Lawson of Gray, Kentucky broke into a store on Thursday night and stole rifles, handguns, knives, cigarettes, chewing tobacco, and food.  And he wore a homemade mask made out of a white sheet.


The sheriff's department investigated and named Kevin a potential suspect.  And when they were questioning him, they asked if they could take a look at his cell phone . . . and he said yes.



When they went through it, they found he'd taken a selfie right before the robbery . . . WEARING the white mask he wore during the robbery.



He was arrested for burglary and criminal mischief.
