Wisconsin: 37-year-old registered sex offender Scott E. Ziegler is in jail in Waukesha County after authorities found a 14-year-old girl locked in a bedroom under the bedsheets and wearing a leash and dog collar while issuing a search warrant.
The same girl was found accompanying Ziegler two weeks ago in a car after she was reported missing by her mother. No charges have been filed yet. The man is suspected of exchanging sex for drugs with runaway girls since last November.
Police say a downtown retail store that Ziegler either owned or worked at until it closed last November attracted a young crowd. Because of his sex offender status, police kept an eye on him. Ziegler was pursued when the girl went missing again.
