Google Maps Busted Two Guys About to Rob a House in Oklahoma City
Back in July of 2011, a woman in Oklahoma City came home and found two men in her house. They held her at gunpoint for an hour while they tore the place apart, stole some stuff, then left. And the police never caught them.
Now, three years later, there's finally a lead thanks to Google Maps.
It turns out that right before the guys broke into the woman's house, the Google Maps Street View car was driving by and took a photo of them. One of the woman's friends was looking at her house on Google Maps last week, and saw the guys. She sent the photo to her friend, who recognized their clothes and sent the picture along to the police.
Now the police are using the Google Maps image to try to track these guys down.
