A horrifying truth was uncovered after a six-day undercover operation in Florida.
The mission was called “Operation March Sadness 2.” Dozens of people were arrested after police detectives carried out this sting focused on human trafficking, prostitution, and child predators.
Four suspects are Disney employees, according to the sheriff’s office in Polk County, Florida.
CBS News confirmed: “Xavier Jackson, 27, worked as a lifeguard at the Polynesian Resort for Walt Disney.”
“Jackson is accused of sending inappropriate photos of himself and messages to an undercover detective who pretended to be a 14-year-old girl,” the report added.
He was charged with three counts of transmitting harmful material to a minor and one count of unlawful communication.
The three others were allegedly attempting to solicit a prostitute.
One of the suspects was identified as Wilkason Fidele, 24, who worked at the Cosmic Restaurant at Walt Disney World’s Tomorrowland for four years.
Another suspect is Shubham Malave, 27, who is on a visa citizenship from India and worked as a software developer for Disney.
Lastly, one suspect is Ralph Leese, 45, who spent nearly four years working in IT for Disney, according to the report.
Undercover detectives communicated online with the suspects and arranged for a meetup at a location where they were arrested after their arrival.
One couple traveled as far as Bradenton to receive $1,000 for sex, FOX 35 Orlando reports.
“The arrests of a human trafficker and four child predators alone makes this whole operation worthwhile,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said during a news conference Wednesday. “Where there is prostitution, there is exploitation, disease, dysfunction and broken families.”
