Google Maps spots thief Birmingham Highway in Milton

Posted:

MILTON, Ga. – Google Maps may have given a clue as to who stole $1,150 worth of items from a vacant Birmingham Highway lot.

The victim told police that he arrived at his property Oct. 2 to find a storage shed broken into. He said there were pry marks around the door and latch. This is the fifth time the shed was broken into.

Taken were a metal desk, pressure washer, air blower and air compressor. While there are no suspects, the victim said he was searching on Google Maps’ Street View, which allows users to view properties from a street angle, and he saw an unknown white Chevy pickup truck parked on his property two months ago in front of his shed.
