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.

The woman was arrested on Saturday and charged with theft and information fraud. There are ten victims in the case.

The police suspect the woman of having stolen from citizens whose homes she has visited as part of her work as a domestic worker in various places in Copenhagen.

“She has worked as a domestic helper and has been in people’s homes as an employee,” Bjarke Dalsgaard, deputy police inspector at Copenhagen police, said.

According to the police, the woman has stolen jewellery and cash on ten occasions. In addition, she has stolen debit cards in four cases and withdrawn money using them. The money that has been withdrawn alone adds up to a value of 52,000 kroner.

Copenhagen police received the first report of theft in the case at the beginning of 2022.

According to the police, the 31-year-old domestic helper admitted to one instance of crime (the theft of around 400 kroner) but pleaded not guilty regarding the remaining 13.
