Always Providing You With Ongoing Information


On Thursday, a Edina Minnesota judge issued a warrant to city police allowing them to request a large amount of information on anyone and everyone who submitted a Google search for a particular name.

The police say that the perpetrator of a recent wire transfer fraud via a Minnesota bank faxed over a fabricated passport as proof of identification. A subsequent Google search for the name on the passport turned up the image that was sent to the bank. Because of this, police suspect that the perpetrator also searched Google for the name, which is how they found the picture.

Police now plan to leave no stone — or laptop, as it were — untoouched in their hunt for people who went looking for that image. They want phone numbers, addresses, names, search times, and more for anyone with the name in their backlog.
