This week, it's being used to catch two armed robbers who raided an Oklahoma woman's home back in 2011. They also held her at gunpoint for more than an hour. The woman told KFOR:
“It’s still pretty vivid. I can relive it every day, every time I walk in my home I can relive it.”
Flash forward to this week when the woman's friend was looking at Google Street View images of her street. Can you guess what she saw?
“The very next thing she texted me was a picture and it was a picture of the guys that robbed me standing in front of my house. Those are the guys that robbed me and she said I know they’re on Google maps!”
Even though their faces are blurred, the victim and Oklahoma City police are asking for your help. Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300.
