Google Helps Capture a Mugger

Google's 'Street View' helped capture a mugger. Right before the crime a Google street view van likely happened by capturing the scenery for its service. When the victim looked at the area after the incident, he recognized the muggers. Police investigated and got a confession.

"Dutch twin brothers who mugged a teenager in the northern town of Groningen were arrested after being caught on camera by a car gathering images for Google's online photo map service, police said."
