AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Dutch twin brothers who mugged a teenager in the northern town of Groningenwere arrested after being caught on camera by a car gathering images for Google‘s online photo map service, police said.

The pair stole the 14-year-old boy’s mobile phone and 165 euros ($230) in cash last September.

“The picture was taken just a moment before the crime,” a police spokesman said.

In March, the victim recognized himself and the two robbers while surfing Google Maps, which has a “Street View” feature allowing users to see images of buildings. The images are usually taken by a camera mounted on a car.

After an investigation by the police, one of the 24-year-old twins confessed to robbing the boy.

Man, when did Google become such a snitch? They shouldn’t be taking random pictures without our consent. As you can see below, even I have been screwed by Google Maps. They took that picture outside my house last Saturday. I can’t even have a private night with a nice lady anymore.
