The Sun claims thieves are using Google Earth to locate and steal expensive koi carp, the British tabloid heard from police that twelve thefts of koi have been reported in Hull, East Yorks, in the last three weeks. Community office Sam Gregory believes criminals are using Google Earth's mapping system to locate koi that are easy to steal.
PCSO Gregory said: "Google shows what is in your garden and you can see people's ponds.
"One of the properties targeted has an eight foot fence and is set back from the road.
"The pond is in the corner and can't be seen.
"Unless you were standing right next to the wall, you wouldn't be able to hear the running water."
