Released Thursday by West Allis police, the 2013 reports detailing Powell's arrest and his spying operation provide an eye-popping new chapter in the long-running history of Scientology and its use of private investigators to control ex-members and other enemies.

Ron Miscavige, now 79, left the church's desert base in 2012, but he had not escaped the reach of a Scientology intelligence apparatus that shows with every new revelation how far the tax-exempt organization is willing to go.

Powell told police he was expected to recruit people to befriend Ron Miscavige and his wife, Becky, "and remain close to them for information purposes."
