General News

FL: Three Disney World employees along with 17 arrested in child sex sting

Three Walt Disney World employees in Orlando were along with 17 suspects arrested in a massive child sex sting in Florida.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrests as part of ‘Operation Child Protector’ at a news conference on Tuesday.

Collectively, the group was charged with 49 felony counts and two misdemeanors, including: traveling to meet a minor for sex, attempted felony battery, using a computer to seduce a child, and transmission of material harmful to a child.

Officials said most of the suspects had communicated with undercover agents, posing as 13- and 14-year-olds, and then traveled to a location with the intention of meeting and sexually assaulting victims.

Six suspects had brought condoms for the meet-ups. The two suspects did not actually visit, but sent obscene messages, pictures, and videos online to underage people.

Three suspects – Kenneth Javier Aquino, Jonathan McGrew, and Sarah Lawrence – stood out among the group because they are each employed by Disney.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told a news conference that Animal Kingdom Lodge lifeguard Aquino, 26, was wearing his Disney polo shirt, swim trunk, and alligator when he was arrested by undercover detectives on July 27.

Judd said that Aquino went straight to meet the girl from work that day after starting a conversation with who he thought a 14-year-old girl, asking for nude photos and sending pornographic videos of herself, Judd said.

‘He used to brag about his skills and how amazing he was,’ said Aquino’s Judd, who was the first to be arrested in the week-long sting. ‘He left his girlfriend, who was seven months pregnant with his child, to have sex with a child.’

McGrew, 34, and girlfriend Lawrence, 29, both of Kissimmee and both patrons at Disney’s Hollywood Studios allegedly tried to arrange a threesome with a secret spy posing as a 14-year-old girl on August 1.

Police said McGrew contacted two undercover detectives posing as underage girls within the same time frame, inviting one to his apartment and sending videos of him and Lawrence’s sexual acts.

McGrew wrote in a message, ‘Our fantasy is to play stepfather/stepdaughter/stepmother, teacher/student maybe even shoplifter where we do the strip search.

Lawrence told police she was “just a follower,” Judd said. The two took an Uber to the detective’s location, attempted to meet a minor for sex, and were arrested on the scene without incident.

McGrew reportedly wrote to the detective, ‘We want to enjoy the opportunity, we don’t want to rush. ‘Maybe at the conclusion, we’ll cuddle a little.’

According to PIX, at least 35 Disney employees were arrested for pedophilia-related charges between 2006 and 2014.

According to Newsweek, a chef and food runner at Disney facilities was caught in a child sex ring in 2018, and Metro reported that two more Disney employees were pegged for their involvement in a 2019 child porn sting, Metro reported.

Judd told reporters that one of those arrested, who could not be excluded because of HIPAA laws, admitted to officers after his arrest that he was HIV positive. He was not among those arrested with a condom on his person.

Orlando’s Domino’s Pizza driver Lior Enbar, 31, married LA-resident Jarrod Justice, 33, and Irving Oliver, 41, of Lackland, were all charged within the same day on July 27 for the crime of traveling to meeting a minor for sex and attempted lewd battery.

Justice reportedly brought condoms and Sour Patch Kids to the scene. Enbar allegedly dialed *67 to call the 14-year-old ‘girl’ he was related to, asking for photos and videos and detailing what he wanted to do sexually.

Prior to this, Oliver was arrested for battery domestic violence, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and violating a restraining order.

Detectives said they found the PCP in the wallet of 30-year-old Joshua Ortega of Davenport when he was in prison, traveling to visit a minor for sex, and his charges of the attempted indecent battery included two additional offenses.

He was released from state prison in June last year after being jailed for possession of cocaine, marijuana-related charges, theft, grand theft, and probation violations.

Ortega told detectives that he was unemployed, lived with his mother, and went to the place to have sex with a 14-year-old because he ‘hadn’t had sex in a while.’

Davenport’s registered nurse Juan Guadalupe-Arroyo, 47, was arrested after arriving at the detective’s location to meet with a 14-year-old boy for sex on July 30, police said.

He explained in detail what he wanted to do in conversation with the detectives and brought the condom to the scene. In addition to allegations related to the sex attempt, Guadalupe-Arroyo was also accused of misrepresenting his age online – telling the boy he was only 40 years old.

Carlos Flores, 36, of Orlando, was also charged for lying about his age on July 30 after he told a detective posing as a 13-year-old girl that he was 17.

Judd said, ‘He didn’t want to come inside the building, he wanted the girl to meet him in his car—it was his fantasy, having sex in the car.’

That day, Enrique Medina of Orlando, 47, and Adam Smith of Kissimmee, 30, were also charged with traveling felonies and attempted lewd battery to meet a minor.

Judd said custodian Thomas Snyder of Lakeland, 44, was at work while he sent a candid photo of himself from his job site with detectives posing as a 13-year-old boy on July 31.

‘He said “I like stinky feet” – he wanted to smell the little boy’s feet, and then he wanted to play with his toes,’ said Judd. ‘He talked really, really dirty during the secret conversation.’

Garbage truck drivers Jeremiah Davis, 27, of Clewiston, David Ring of Lakeland, 34, and Philip Nelson, 27, of Polk City, were all charged with felony counts on July 31, the day when they were communicating and traveling to those they thought they were 14 year old girls.

Julio Enrique Cedeno Jr., 45, of Zephyrhills, and self-identified professional poker player, Edward McGaffigan, 37, of Orlando, were both charged with the transmission of harmful material to a minor and the unlawful use of a two-way communication device for sending obscene photos. was alleged. themselves to 13- and 14-year-old ‘girls’ and requesting for the same in return.

‘He sent harmful material, he thought it was a 14 year old girl. When we went to pick him up, we actually showed him the chats. You know what he said? “Well, that’s really bad.” No kidding,’ said McGaffigan’s Judd. ‘He couldn’t travel – someone stole his car, so he just talked dirty and sent harmful material.’

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office was assisted in the undercover sting by the Auburndale Police Department, the Orlando Police Department, the Winter Haven Police Department, and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

Judd said in the press conference, ‘Our detectives working in this operation are excellent. ‘He is adept at talking like a 13- and 14-year-old and worked round the clock for a week to arrest 17 people.’

The writing is terrible! What is this site anyway, another tough on crime spinoff that accepts stories from most anyone? Is that what Affiliates are? Seems there are a lot of these and the stories find their way here.

And a dating site? Why do the police keep using dating sites (that of course require 18 and older) and not expect hits? Bait and switch.

It should be noted that none of these people arrested for these alleged offenses are registered citizens. If they were the article would certainly have pointed that fact out. And the registry is making the world a safer place? Bah, humbug.

Soon there will be more registrants than non registrants.

God willing.

Polk county sheriff Judd said in the press conference that our detectives working this operation are EXCELLENT he is adeapt at talking like a 13 or 14 year old and worked around the clock for a week to arrest 17 people
Sounds a bit creepy a grown as man sitting around having phone sex with random old man while talking like little kid
I’m just glad these guys were talking to polk county sheriff’s deputies and not an actual 13-14 year old child
these guys are prime examples of why Megan’s law will always exist its 2021 how are people still carelessly getting busted in these stings

Good luck

You must understand. We as registrants have learned about this either through our actions or be reading this blog site. I personally didn’t know that there were these stings until I read it here. The general public has no idea how the police work to entrap their prey.

I don’t think real predators are concerned at all about stings. First of all, most of them already know their targets. Then I think the rest are actually out hanging out with children. They are a lot more careful than chatting up random strangers on the internet. I would think the real danger of that, and probably a billion times more likely to get a person in trouble than a sting, would be that the child would just tell their parents and they would get law enforcement involved. I doubt that stings have much effect at all. Any real predator, or even anyone with an I.Q. of at least 100, already knows the real dangers of “grooming” and that stings are an insignificant part of it. The main effect of stings and the reason they exist is to allow LE to brag, run PR campaigns, and feel a little bit better about themselves. It’s sad.

The real predators, the ones actually talking (and worse) to children, aren’t being caught. These guys they caught aren’t it.

It makes zero sense that these activities would give any additional support the Megan’s Flaw. It shows how useless it is. But “people” who support Megan’s Flaw are dumb as dirt so no one should try to apply any logic or reality to them. They continue to support the idiocy even in the face of overwhelming facts.

Just a general question:
What website or chat room do people get stung?
Any feed back?
It would be an interesting survey.
I’m sure the public in general assumes it’s “child sites” whatever that might be.

I’ve often wondered the same thing so I can find one and figure out who the cop is and out him. Its probably some app like Kik or Telegraph. I don’t know.

It could be anything. I think Reason.com did a story awhile back on these stings using dating sites like plenty of fish. They might meet on a certain site and then at some point move the chat over to a private messaging site. Still, until I met my now husband, I didn’t really pay much attention. I wasn’t one of those people who were terrified of PFR in my neighborhood, but if I saw an article like that I would have probably just assumed that police really were on a site that attracted children (or was for them) and that they represented themselves adequacy as a child (from the beginning) and that they weren’t doing things like asking for dirty pics of the “stingee” they were talking to, that they allowed the stingee to leave the conversation without being called names or harassing them for months with messages like “why won’t you talk to me anymore?” and listening to the stingee when they say things like “you are too young for me” without pushing them, etc… all of these things, unfortunately have happened in these stings.

When my husband (we weren’t even dating then) got caught up in one of these while he was in Afghanistan (and it’s not like you can meet a person in Afghanistan, so there was no talk of that) it was a social media site for 17 and over and they claimed they did age verification (they did not). The woman he thought he was talking to had pictures that were not age regressed and they didn’t even bother to cover her tattoo. But it’s not like there is mention of that when he’s forced to register. The woman in the picture was in her 20s and the military agent he talked to was in his 30s and talked like an adult. The agent who chatted was not certified in the ICAC division, and he was working outside the Operation. None of this mattered to the Judge.

I’m not saying that there aren’t people out there trying to meet with minors… I just don’t think the police are following ICAC “standards”, or even the original intent of these stings which leads to entrapment, but often times the thought crime is so sensationalized, and the public is so terrified about strangers trying to snatch their children away and force them into sex trafficking, the rules of these stings are swept under the rug and law enforcement is allowed to collect hundreds of thousands of dollars for arresting individuals that will almost certainly plea out. Lady Justice Myth had an article on exactly how much they can make with these stings. Added to the fact that it’s literally of no physical risk to them and who knows, I would say AERO is right- they probably really like it. They will look like absolute heroes when stopping underground sex trafficking or anything like that is really not accomplished.

I didn’t really know how these stings worked either until I started to look a little deeper into it. There are sites like Craigslist and online dating sites being used, and there have been many, many examples of them stating the woman is 18 and over, and then switching the age to 14 or 15. With the internet- you never really know who to trust, so I know it would seem like total common sense to just stop talking to someone once they say they are a minor. But I do think there are a lot of lonely people in the world in this day and age and it’s easy to be catfished.

Additionally, and I know this just because I know a lot of people who do this… there are a lot of people who peruse the internet either while drinking or under some other influence… it sometimes can probably lead to confusion if the lady says she’s 18, talks like an adult and she LOOKS 18 and then about 3 weeks later she’s supposedly 15, and she has been the one pushing the sexual innuendo from the beginning… I can see why people are confused. My husband was on Ambien when he was asked to send a picture of himself. It was actually in the chat that he said he was on Ambien, so they knew they could get a picture of him. Add this to some real awkwardness with the opposite sex as some have, I can begin to see how easy it would be for law enforcement to groom a future “sex offender”, and create a thought criminal that the public will regard as a real criminal, as opposed to the other way around.
I even think if LE followed the rules and the media would stop bootlicking (especially when they didn’t follow the rules) these stings would dry out.

They claim they can’t say because it would compromise investigations. That probably means people would figure out cops hang out at adult sites pretending to be children.

From the official site:

Detectives arrest 17 suspects for preying upon children online during “Operation Child Protector”
PCSO undercover detectives and partnering agencies conducted an undercover operation from July 27th through August 1st, 2021, during which detectives posed as juveniles on social media platforms, mobile apps, and online dating sites to investigate those who prey upon and travel to meet children for unlawful sexual activity. Detectives from the Auburndale Police Department, Orlando Police Department, Winter Haven Police Department, and Orange County Sheriff’s Office, participated in “Operation Child Protector.”

I know mine, in the early 2000s, was on Yahoo, which hosted regional “romance” rooms which were nearly unusable due to porn bots constantly spamming. I’m not sure if it was 18 and over, but it certainly wasn’t for minors and you couldn’t spend more than 5 minutes there without being sent links to porn websites. The male to female ratio was probably 100:1, and most of the “women” were more porn bots with names like “Pamela 22F” who would just send you more porn spam if you talked to them. The older male officer I talked to (I was in my mid 20s at the time and stupid as hell) called himself something like “Rebecca 420.” The public is absolutely led to believe these stings protect kids in places kids should be on the Internet, and instead they are knowingly targeting desperate men in places where minor females are extremely unlikely to go. Not long after my arrest, Yahoo shuttered its chatrooms, which is for the best. I was surprised to hear stings are still happening in the post-chatroom Internet.

What amazes me is that people fall for this BS. If you’re in a chatroom talking to a girl and she says she’s 14…RUN!!!!!
A guy is less likely to get busted by striking up a conversation with someone in a public park than on the internet. (Not that I’m advocating talking to minors in a park. Don’t do that either).

This article points to Grindr.

A Teacher Died By Suicide After Being Arrested for Soliciting a Minor. His Family Says the Cops Went Rogue.

On July 31, 2019, Brian Petersen, a 39-year-old school teacher in Texas, went on the gay dating app Grindr and struck up a conversation with a man whose profile name was “Fresh Meat.”

When did they start charging you for lying about your age? Should be a lot of teenager girls in jail for having 17,18 boys locked up cause they lied about their age.
