SAM has Sent another SMS! We need you to solve the encrypted message! We will reward €1,500 to an investigator who solves all of SAM's messages correctly!
The sixth encoded message Sam has sent to you can be deciphered by first finding the location of kidnapper 6#, which is hidden in the picture below. After you have found the location you have to search for a specific detail on Google Street View.
The detail you have to look for is described below.
If you solve it successfully, note the answer down to remember it for the very last puzzle.
