Now Google Earth is helping Swiss police track down ne'er-do-wells. Even if it is by accident.
Dude, I can see your pot from hereThis past Thursday, they discovered a marijuana plantation while using Google Earth. They spotted the two acre plantation inside a corn field while they were trying to find the address of two farmers they suspected were involved in a drug ring.
"It was an interesting chance discovery," Norbert Klossner, head of the Zurich police narcotics unit, told the Associated Press.
Police discovered the field last year, and it led to the arrest of 16 people and seizure of 1.2 US tons of marijuana as well as cash and valuables worth $780,000.
