A sharp-eyed Boing Boing contributor has spotted what may be alleged kidnapper and rapist Phillip Garrido stalking a Street View van, after he spotted it capturing his house in Antioch, California.

Garrido, 58, is accused of kidnapping 11-year-old Jaycee Lee Dugard in 1991 in the Lake Tahoe area of Nevada and holding her for 18 years at 1554 Walnut Avenue, "much of the time in an overgrown backyard filled with sheds and tents", as the Los Angeles Times puts it.

The paper describes the compound as comprising a "backyard within a backyard", featuring "a squalid complex of tents, tarps and sheds", and clearly visible on Google Maps:
