SAN ANTONIO – A San Antonio man has been arrested after he broke into a Ford truck, stole a woman’s Glock pistol, and posted social media videos of himself with the gun and the caption “quick money baby,” according to court documents.

Bexar County Jail records show Abraham Munoz, 21, was arrested Wednesday and charged with theft of a firearm and burglary of vehicles following the incident on March 31.

On that day, a woman parked her Ford truck outside an unnamed mall and received a vehicle alarm notification on her phone. She went to her truck and realized someone broke into the vehicle and took her Glock handgun that was in the glove compartment, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

She told police her gun had a distinct green snakeskin-patterned gun holster. She also said she noticed a man in a Mercedes-Benz car was parked next to her.

Police had already been investigating a group of car burglary suspects that frequently target Ford trucks and steal guns, the affidavit states.

Investigators then searched the social media accounts of one of those suspects, identified as Munoz, after the theft.

The affidavit states that Munoz posted videos of himself in a Mercedes-Benz car, wearing gloves and holding vice grips. One video appears to show two guns in his lap as he’s driving, and another video appears to show the Glock in the snakeskin-patterned gun holster.

The videos were titled “quick money baby” and “active,” a term used when people are conducting criminal activity, the affidavit states.

The videos were taken two minutes after the woman reported the theft.

Surveillance footage showed someone in a Mercedes-Benz burglarizing the truck, and the person in the video matched Munoz’s description, the affidavit states.

Records show his bond was set at $5,000.
