The Church of Scientology paid a pair of private investigators $10,000 a week to spy on the father of David Miscavige, the organization's leader, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Ronald Miscavige Sr. was put under surveillance for 18 months by detectives in the employ of the Church, the Times reported. The investigators spied on his email, eavesdropped on his conversations and installed a GPS tracking system in his car.

The surveillance came to light after the Times obtained documents detailing a police interrogation of one of the detectives, former Florida private investigator Dwayne S. Powell, who was arrested in Wisconsin in 2013 on suspicion of obstruction, after being found with guns and ammunition in a vehicle near Miscavige Sr.'s home.
