Placer County sheriff's detectives didn't have to go far to arrest and book their latest suspect, who reportedly befriended them through an online ad and agreed to meet — in the Placer County Jail parking lot — for a sexual rendezvous.
Daniel Eugene Kirschner, 28, of Auburn, became the fourth suspect since February who has been arrested after placing an online ad that was answered by a Placer County sheriff's detective.

Detectives, posing as the 13-year-old, told Kirschner that she'd meet up with him at the jail while her mother was there for her boyfriend's court appearance, a spokeswoman for the Placer County Sheriff's Office said.

Kirschner was booked on charges of communicating with a minor for purposes of committing a sexual act and attempted lewd and lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14. He was booked and released on $100,000 bail.
