Wanna See Some Heroin Dealers on Google Street View?

Heroin Dealers on Street View
The NYPD just busted a ring of alleged drug dealers that had reportedly cornered the heroin market in Brooklyn's North Williamsburg area. The group of seven was caught on surveillance cameras openly selling drugs on a street corner near the Cooper Park housing projects; they were even recorded hiding their product in a magnetic lock-box stashed behind a metal sign.

And if you've ever wondered what a well-oiled, street-level drug dealing machine looks like, you're in luck. The Google Street View team actually managed to capture part of the ring at one of their regular spots at the corner of Jackson Street and Kingsland Avenue. What's the world coming to when drug dealers can't sling smack in broad daylight without fear of being caught by the all-seeing eye of Google?
