Disney worker among arrests in Florida child predator sting

An undercover online child predator investigation resulted in the arrest of a dozen suspects in Polk County, according to investigators with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, Auburndale Police Department, and Winter Haven Police Department, who worked together on “Operation Child Protector II.” Sheriff Grady Judd said 12 suspects were arrested for a total of 49 felonies, and nine of the 12 had no criminal history. Four of the suspects allegedly traveled to an undercover location to meet someone they thought was a teenage girl, between the ages of 13 and 15, but instead found detectives waiting to arrest them.
