PLACERVILLE (CBS13) – A man is under arrest after detectives said he posted an online ad looking for a girl to be his “sex pet.”
According to the Placer County Sheriff’s Office, 26-year-old Placerville resident Shawn Michael Roediger posted the ad on an undisclosed website back on July 29. Detectives allege that Roediger wrote he was looking for a “young girl” to be his “sex pet.”
