Two thieves who nicked garden tractors from a shop in Gråsten in southern Jutland may be brought to justice thanks to a random photo taken by the Google Street View vehicle.

South Jutland police say the photo shows two men in the act of stealing a red Jonsered lawn tractor from the shop on 30 May at 14:20.

The photo, which was only recently discovered, shows two men stealing the tractor and putting it into a white box trailer attached to a silver grey Opel.

Google has authorised police to use the photo. South Jutland police are asking for anyone who recognises the men, trailer or vehicle to contact them in Sønderborg.
