Cheating husband caught on Google Street View 

The Sun in the UK is reporting that a cheating husband has been caught by his curious wife after she checked out a friend's house on Google Street View and noticed her husband's Range Rover parked in front of the house. She says he was supposed to be away on business at the time, which seems a bit hard to understand as the time the photos are taken aren't published by Google. But regardless of that detail, she recognized the car because of a dinged hubcap. So maybe blurring faces and licence plates isn't quite enough. See: Cheating husband caught on Google Street View The Sun News.

Addendum: Apparently the story wasn't true, but was a bid to seek attention. It should have been obvious, as Google Street View doesn't provide any indication of when the photo was taken. It may provide the "what" and the "who", but there's no "when".
