SAND SPRINGS, Okla. - A Sand Springs family said someone kicked in the door to their mobile home, held a gun to an eight-year-old girl’s head and demanded keys to a truck Sunday evening.

The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office said Eduardo Montoya took off with the truck and started using Snapchat.

Deputies say they were able to track Montoya down, thanks to his social media use.

He now faces a host of charges, including burglary, grand larceny and robbery by force.

Officials say Montoya was already on a deferred sentence in connection to another case.
