Van Exiting Driveway of Kidnapping Suspect Caught on Google Maps
The driveway of Phillip Garrido, caught on camera by Google Maps
A rusty van was caught on Google Maps emerging from the driveway of a sex offender and convicted rapist accused of kidnapping an 11-year-old girl in 1991 and holding her captive for 18 years.
As Google's 360-degree camera car travels through Antioch, Calif., the van can be seen pulling out of the driveway of 1554 Walnut Avenue, home of Phillip Garrido — who is now behind bars with his wife Nancy in the kidnapping of Jaycee Lee Dugard, MyFOXHouston reported.
The van follows the Google vehicle down the street and around the corner.
It isn't clear whether the van driver knew the car belonged to Google, or whether the Google car was deliberately targeting Garrido.
Google's camera cars have been snapping photos along public roads and posting the images on Google Maps for the past couple of years.
Garrido snatched Dugard from a South Lake Tahoe street in 1991 while she was waiting for the school bus.
He held her captive for 18 years in a backyard compound of tents and sheds at his Walnut Avenue home, raped her repeatedly and fathered her two children.
Last week, Dugard was rescued and Garrido was imprisoned with his wife.
