A photo of money posted on Snapchat led to a home invasion and robbery in Boca Raton, Florida.

An armed robber held a butcher's knife to an 18-year-old man's neck and disappeared with 280 dollars, according to Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

Officers said the two suspects knew he had cash because the victim had posted the photo earlier in the day.

The victim told investigators he recognised one of the attackers' voices, whom he identified as 21-year-old Faried Said, who was arrested on charges of armed robbery with a deadly weapon and burglary to a dwelling or structure.
