Earth to drug dealers — Google is watching!

Three brazen heroin dealers were captured in Google Street View images working their favorite Brooklyn drug corner, where they peddled their product to hipsters and other dope fiends, law-enforcement sources said yesterday.

Multiple images captured along Jackson Street and Kingsland Avenue by the search engine’s ubiquitous camera car show the trio milling about in front of the Neighborhood Grocery — one of two East Williamsburg bodegas where they set up shop.

“A lot of people sell drugs in front of here. They have to clean up the streets. Children learn what they see,” José Ruiz, 33, an employee of the Neighborhood Grocery, told The Post.

Across the street at Chela Grocery on Kingsland Avenue, manager Jose Inez said he would close the store from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. because “it was serving as a sanctuary for drug dealers.”

“If you look at the neighborhood, there are a lot of drugs,” Inez said. “You don’t want your kids to walk around a neighborhood with drugs.”

The suspects in the Google photo — identified as Shaundell Dade in the coat, Jamel Pringle to his right and Jonathan Paulino to his left — were among seven dealers arrested yesterday in an NYPD undercover sting operation, said Prosecutor Bridget Brennan.

Six of them have been indicted on multiple counts of criminal sale of a controlled substance. The seventh will be charged and arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court.
