Google Street View Catches Drug Dealers

Three alleged heroin dealers were arrested Wednesday after Google Street View photographed them hawking their wares in front of a Brooklyn bodega. It’s not the first time Google Street View has caught someone red-handed. Sure, the roving raise privacy concerns, especially when used in an arrest, but ABC points out that Google Street View captures are usually of more entertainment than legal value. There’s the two-headed man photographed in Hawes, England, likely the result of Google’s splicing two photographs together, and the man walking his boa constrictor in Norwich, England. Google Earth has spotted a corn maze in the shape of Oprah’s face and a sand dune in the shape of Jesus’, and a Los Angeles musician believes he’s found a sunken ship using Google’s satellite mapping service.
