ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – A police officer is testifying that a prominent Minnesota GOP donor allegedly paid underage girls for sex.

The Star Tribune reports that Minneapolis Police Officer Brandon Brugger testified during a detention hearing Tuesday for Anton Lazzaro that Lazzaro groomed his victims with expensive purses, vape pens, alcohol and other gifts. Brugger added that 19-year-old University of St. Thomas student Gisela Castro Medina recruited girls for Lazzaro on SnapChat.

A federal grand jury indicted the 30-year-old Lazzaro on multiple sex trafficking counts earlier this month.
