A human trafficking sting in central Florida has netted 108 arrests, including four Disney employees, Polk County police revealed on Wednesday, announcing the conclusion of a six-day undercover investigation called “Operation March Sadness 2.”
Among those caught up in the sting were a 27-year-old man who worked as a lifeguard at the Disney Polynesian Village Resort, a man who was caught sending graphic sexual messages and indecent photos of himself to an undercover officer posing as a 14-year-old girl. The other Disney employees included a 24-year-old worker at the Cosmic Restaurant, as well as a 45-year-old IT worker and a 27-year-old software developer.
“Four arrests of this magnitude in a week is simply remarkable,” Sheriff Grady Judd observed during a press conference on Wednesday.
