According to statements given by the Polk County Sheriff Office,

“The six-day-long undercover operation, dubbed “Operation Child Protector,” took place from July 27 through Aug. 1, during which law enforcement officers posed as children on social media platforms, mobile apps, and online dating sites to investigate potential predators who prey upon children for unlawful sexual activity.

A total of 17 people were arrested, representing 49 felony charges and two misdemeanor charges in all. The suspects’ ages ranged from 26 to 47. They were mostly from the central Florida area, with the exception of one who was visiting from California.

The suspects showed up to an undercover location in the county at separate times to meet who they thought would be children. Six of the suspects brought condoms, and nine of them have criminal histories that amounted to 27 previous felonies and 22 previous misdemeanors in total.

“Some of [the suspects] transmitted pornographic images while grooming and soliciting the children online, and they were appropriately charged for that as well.”

The Sheriff of Polk County, Grady Judd told to the reporters that “Savannah Lawrence, 29, and Jonathan McGrew, 34, work as custodians at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios. They spoke to an undercover detective posing as a 13-year-old girl online and told the “girl” that they wanted to engage in sexual activity together. McGrew went even further and described to the “girl” various role-playing scenarios they could enact.

Another Disney employee, 26-year-old Kenneth Aquino, was arrested at the undercover location when he went there in his work clothes. Aquino worked as a lifeguard at the Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge and had left his pregnant girlfriend to engage in sexual activity with what he thought was a 13-year-old child. Aquino was working toward a dive team or a SEAL team or some kind of special ops job. They did a background check on him and found he had friends or affiliates that were gang members, and they tossed him.”

One of the male suspects was HIV-positive, but due to the 1996 Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the person couldn’t be identified.

“Did you hear what I’m telling you? He’s HIV positive. He showed up to have unprotected sex with what he thought was a child … with a little girl. Fortunately, our detectives were there instead of a 13-year-old child,” Judd said with revolt.

I am grateful for this heroic police job, wish we could catch as many child molesters and predators, and sex offenders!
