Man gets in trouble for posting selfies in van on his way to jail @ 11:34 pm

Police say that Shane Stephen Holbrook, 27, approached a vehicle parked in front of a business in the 500 block of 20th Street in Huntington, pulled a gun, then demanded the occupants of the vehicle give him money.
According to the report, two of the occupants gave him money, a third was shot while attempting to give Holbrook his money. Holbrook is currently being held in the Western Regional Jail on first-degree robbery and malicious wounding charges.
Holbrook however appeared in court on Monday, April 25th and filed a motion to be released from jail on home confinement. That motion was denied.
At some point during transport back to Western Regional Jail, Holbrook had access to a device that he used to post selfie on Facebook.
According to WEAR-TV, when they interviewed Holbrook and asked him why he posted those photos, he said he wanted to reassure his family that he was doing well, and posted three selfies with the captions, 'On the van,' 'Go hard all day', and 'Catch up' over the course of at least 20 minutes.
"We were just trying to have a good time in jail. We're already here, why be miserable?'
The spokesperson for the jail released a statement that reads in part:
'The Western Regional Jail and Correctional Facility authorities requires pat-downs of all individuals when they enter its custody as part of the agency's zero tolerance police against contraband.
'The incident in question remains under investigation. The device at issue was confiscated before the inmates entered the Western Regional Jail.'
