 Seven Men Arrested For Lewd Acts At Saddle Creek Park 


On Tuesday, May 1, 2012, PCSO Vice detectives conducted an undercover operation at the Saddle Creek Park located on Morgan Combee Road between Lakeland and Winter Haven in response to complaints of lewd activity taking place there.

“The men we arrest during operations like this usually have two things in common -- most of them are married, and they are always angry that we arrested them. Now they all have a third thing in common -- they have all visited the Polk County Jail. If you commit lewd acts in public, you can expect to get arrested. The law-abiding citizens of the county are the ones who have the right to be angry about this type of behavior.” – Sheriff Grady Judd
