POLK COUNTY, Fla. — Seventeen people, including three Walt Disney World employees and a registered nurse, were arrested in a six-day undercover child predator sting by Central Florida authorities.
According to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, Operation Child Protector targeted people who use the internet to prey on children, WTVT reported. The 17 people arrested face 49 felonies and two misdemeanors, the television station reported. Nine people had criminal records, WFLA reported.
