Half million dollar bond for man charged with sex crimes

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - A Salisbury man is being held under a bond of $500,000 after being charged with several sex crimes involving a 15 year old girl.

Douglas Norris Zigler, 58, of Statesville Boulevard in Salisbury, was indicted on the charges and turned himself in on Monday after consulting with his lawyer.

Zigler is charged with one count of taking indecent liberties with a child, two counts of statutory rape, and one count of kidnapping.

Police say a relative of the alleged victim in the case actually walked in on Zigler while one of the incidents was taking place.  That relative told the girl's father who immediately called police.

Investigators say the alleged victim is known to Zigler.
