London, Sept 1 (ANI): The house where 'American Fritzl' Philip Garrido and his wife Nancy held Jaycee Lee Dugard captive for 18 years is surrounded by dozens of sex offenders.

More than 120 men with convictions for offences against kids live within five miles of the property where Dugard was forced to live in a ramshackle collection of tents and sheds in the back yard, reports the Telegraph.

The run down working class suburb near Antioch, 50 miles east of San Francisco, has become a refuge for convicted paedophiles and residents with children and grandchildren regularly scour a public website which details where they live.

Polly White, 65, whose house backs on to Garrido's, said: "We found out there's a predator living up the road and that's not even Garrido. We were less worried about him than the other one."

As part of investigation, police are visiting other registered sex offenders in the area to find out if any of them attended wild sex parties that neighbours reported hearing in Garrido's garden. (ANI)
