CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (CBS4) – Douglas County has a warning about Google Maps and other social media sites.

Investigators say burglars could be using the sites to target homes and businesses. Detectives want homeowners to be careful about putting up too much information on Facebook or Twitter about the items people buy or the vacations they take.

Investigators also say on Google’s “street view” potential thieves can see close-up images of homes or businesses.
