Google Street View can sometimes pick up on some less than savory moments.

Google Street View is a nifty little tool that can be used with the Google Maps program. I'm sure that many of you have Googled your home or some of your hangouts to see if you could find your car or simply just "cruise" through town at street level.

I personally used the feature to zoom in on my house at street level to see my car parked in my driveway as the Google Street View vehicle whizzed by unannounced.

On other occasions, I've seen people post their Street View finds online. Just last month, I ran across an accident in Phoenix, Arizona caught by a Street View vehicle. The vehicle captures a Range Rover upside down after it crashed into an Audi Q7. Panning around the scene, you can see bystanders looking on in amazement.

Today, however, when visiting my favorite place for car-related topics, The Car Lounge, I came across a rather interesting Google Street View find. The Google Street View vehicle appears to capture a drug deal going down in one of Chicago's rather seedy neighborhoods.

The apparent "deal" doesn't appear to faze any of the bystanders in the scene as they are going about their business.

But it just goes to show that Google's reach is extending into just about every facet of American life... even if it's not in a way that the company would prefer.

For the rest of you out there, post your interesting Street View finds from around the U.S. Don't be shy, I'm sure that the DailyTech readership can find some interesting scenes of your own.
