Detectives from the Placer County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Fair Oaks man who came to Auburn for what he thought was a sexual rendezvous with a 13-year-old girl. Instead, he was met by detectives who had answered his online ad.

Timothy Robert Nosal, 48, originally attracted the attention of detectives with an online ad. A detective corresponded with Nosal for several weeks, posing as a 13-year-old girl. During his lunch hour today, Nosal drove from his job in Rancho Cordova for a planned meeting with the “girl” at Ashford Park in Auburn. Instead, he was arrested and booked at the Placer County Jail without incident.
