Muggers Caught On Google Street View

google-street-view-bikiniGOOGLE Street View is not just for porn. In Holland, police have arrested twin brothers on suspicion of robbery after their alleged victim spotted an image of them following him on Street View.

The teenager says that last September he was pulled from his bicycle and mugged. Then surfing the web he saw the faces that looked familiar.

Because pictures on Street Views are not all in focus, police asked Google for the original photo.

Detectives recognised the youths and a case is now underway.
So you see, you have nothing to fear from Google so long as you are innocent. Right? (How’s that, chaps?)
