And finally… scarface

An Italian mobster with a distinctive scar on his chin was caught after decades on the run when he was spotted on Google Street View.

Police say they tracked down mafia killer Gioacchino Gammino in the Spanish town of Galapagar after he was snapped by Google cameras standing outside a grocery shop.

They subsequently found photographs of him apparently working as a chef at a nearby restaurant and confirmed his identity based on his scar, the BBC reports.

He allegedly told officers arresting him: “How did you find me? I haven’t even called my family for 10 years.”

Mr Gammino, a member of the notorious Stidda mafia group, has been on the run since escaping a prison in Rome in 2002.
