Police in southern Jutland have been helped out by an unlikely source: a Google Street View photo that shows two men carrying out an unsolved theft from 2012.
Big Brother is also watching. That’s a lesson two thieves in Denmark learned the hard way on Tuesday when South Jutland Police shared a Google Street View photo of two men in action stealing a lawn tractor from a business near the town of Gråsten. 
 
“Fantastic! A Google photo shows two thieves in action in Rinkenæs near Gråsten. Who are they?” police wrote on Twitter.
Police are asking the public for help in identifying the two men, who were caught on camera when one of Google’s Street View cars rolled through town in May 2012. 
 
South Jutland Police said they just recently discovered the Google photo and are now seeking witnesses who can help them identify the two men. Police went back on to Twitter to say that their attempts to enlist Google to help identify the men proved unfruitful.
