Larry Langston : Chicago robber busted after leaving selfie behind

A Chicago purse snatcher’s selfie earned him a jailhouse mug shot, authorities said.

Larry Langston, 24, of the 3500 block of West Douglas Boulevard, was arrested at home Wednesday.

According to police, the robber began following a 17-year-old girl after seeing her get money from a West Side currency exchange Aug. 1, police say. Langston snatched the woman’s purse in the 2300 block of West Jackson Boulevard and started to run, police say.

But the thief dropped the purse and a phone, Cook County prosecutors said. The robber picked up the purse, which had $480, but left the phone behind. The cellphone, which had a selfie of Langston as its screen saver, led authorities to the man, prosecutors said.

A Cook County judge ordered Langston held in lieu of $125,000 bail Thursday.
