BOYNTON BEACH, Florida — Stupid is as stupid does.
A Florida teen was arrested after stealing an AR-15 from an off-duty cop’s car and then dancing around with it in a video posted to Instagram leading police right to him.
Moses Clay, 17, was arrested by the Boynton Beach police late Saturday after cops say he waved the customized gun in the air as he danced and rapped to music on Instragram Live.
The gun had been reported missing on Aug. 14,, when a Palm Beach deputy’s unmarked car was broken at a shopping plaza parking lot, the Miami Herald Reported.
Among the stolen weapons were two loaded magazines, a gas mask, Taser, ballistic helmet, and rifle clips.
Police say that while they had surveillance footage showing Clay leaving the parking lot in a car, it was the social media post that gave investigators ground for a search warrant.
Detectives ultimately searched the boy’s home and found the gun under a mattress.
Clay was arrested and taken to a juvenile detention center. He faces charges of grand theft and burglary while armed with a firearm.
