State prosecutors said a trio of South Shore robbers were caught yesterday after they posted images of their bounty on Instagram.

Robert Huddleston, 18, one of at least three alleged robbers who took an iPhone and a pair of Nike Kevin Durant gym shoes from an Auburn Gresham man, was arrested yesterday afternoon. According to the police report, he and at least two companions assaulted a man in the neighborhood and pulled his shoes off his feet.

Before fleeing, one man allegedly said to the victim, "And give me that phone," before taking his iPhone as well.

Prosecutors said the men later posted a photo of the shoes on Instagram, and the victim was able to identify them.

Huddleston, whose attorney told the court that he has "an excellent record," was held on $30,000 bond.
