APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - Police in Appleton have arrested a man suspected of sex and drug crimes.
Officials say Ryan J. Horton was arrested in the 800 block of West Northland Avenue Wednesday just before 4 p.m.
Police say the 27-year-old was arriving for what he thought would be a sexual encounter with a 15-year-old girl. That "girl" turned out to be a detective who had chatted with Horton online.
Further investigation led officers to search a home in the 1600 block of W. Evergreen Dr. They took electronic devices inside the home and also found a marijuana growing operation.
