 PCSO & Partnering Agencies' Undercover Detectives Arrest 39 Suspects During Undercover Investigation Focusing on Those Who Travel to Have Sex with Minors and Prostitution-Related Offenses 


In an undisclosed location in Polk County, beginning on Monday, May 15, through Sunday, May 21, 2017, Polk County Sheriff’s undercover detectives, along with detectives and investigators from other agencies, conducted a week-long undercover investigation targeting online child predators and online prostitution, and arrested 39 suspects.

19 of the arrests were for men traveling to meet a minor for sex. One was arrested for possession of child pornography. 19 other arrests were related to online prostitution – those who are prostitutes and advertise online, and those who solicited undercover detectives who posted ads posing as prostitutes.

The undercover operation included detectives and agents from the following agencies: U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations; Citrus County S.O.; Charlotte County S.O.; Eustis P.D.; FBI Orlando Bureau; Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) Tampa Bay Regional Operations; Lake County S.O.; Largo P.D.; Lee County S.O.; Manatee County S.O.; Orange County S.O.; Orlando P.D.; Osceola County S.O.; Pinellas County S.O.; Sanford P.D.; Sarasota P.D.; Seminole County S.O.; Tampa P.D.; working in conjunction with members of the State Attorney’s Office along with Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Office of Statewide Prosecution.  

During the operation, undercover detectives posted fictitious ads or profiles on various social media platforms, websites, and mobile phone applications, posing as children, or as custodians of children, or as prostitutes or those soliciting prostitutes. Despite the repeated warnings and media coverage of past operations, numerous suspects responded to the ads and then proceeded to chat online, email, text, and talk on the phone with the undercover detectives who posed as children, or custodians of children, or prostitutes or those soliciting prostitution online. Some of the detectives responded to profiles and online ads.  

“These predators are really out there, trying to violate children. All it takes is one glance at the conversations these predators have with our undercover detectives. They lurk in chat rooms, and online, ready to groom and violate your children. Fortunately, we’ve prevented at least 19 of them from doing so. The things that these predators say to children are vile, disgusting, and not fit for anyone except trained detectives to read. And even seasoned, trained detectives are repulsed. These predators need to be locked up, and stay locked up and away from children.” – Grady Judd, Sheriff   

The 39 suspects face a total of 126 charges (95 felonies, 31 misdemeanors) which range from: Attempted Lewd Battery; Use of Computer to Seduce a Child; Transmission of Harmful Material to Minor; Use of a Two-Way Communication Device to Commit a Felony; Promotion of Sexual Performance by a Minor; Traveling to Meet Minor; Possession of Child Pornography; Soliciting Prostitution, Possession of Drugs; and Deriving Proceeds from Prostitution. More charges are pending further investigation of these suspects’ phones, computers, etc.

The suspects solicited who they thought were children as young as 10 years old for sex acts; one suspect solicited who he thought was the father of a 13-year-old girl to have sex with her; another suspect solicited who he thought was the father of a 14-year-old girl to have sex with her; one suspect solicited who he thought was the stepmother of a 12-year-old girl. Some suspects sent pornographic pictures of themselves, and some asked for nude photos of the children to be sent to them. 19 of the suspects drove to the house to follow through with the promises made online to engage in sexual activity with the juveniles. 

·         Six (6) suspects who wanted to have sex with children were from Polk County (Davenport, Haines City, Kissimmee, Lake Wales, and Lakeland).

·         The other 13 suspects drove to Polk County from: Orange County (Orlando); Hillsborough County (Plant City, Brandon, Tampa); Pasco County (Hudson); Marion County (Ocala); Duval County (Jacksonville); Pinellas County (Pinellas Park); and Brevard County (Cocoa, Palm Bay).

·         11 suspects either brought condoms or told the undercover detectives they were bringing condoms

·         10 suspects mentioned this being a possible “set-up” or otherwise mentioned “cops” or law enforcement, but still drove to the undercover location

·         7 suspects asked the “girls” if they were virgins or mentioned wanting to take their virginity

·         5 suspects sent nude photos of themselves and/or pornographic images and videos

·         4 suspects asked the “girls” to send nude photos of themselves (nearly all of the other suspects viewed profile pics of girls or asked for regular photos)

·         3 suspects told detectives they were married; one said he had a fiancée

·         3 suspects said they wanted to “teach” the girl about sex

·         3 suspects conversed with detectives posing as parents or guardians of young children, and drove to the location to have sex with the child – one of those suspects was going to pay $100 to have sex with the child

·         2 suspects brought marijuana; one brought alcohol; one brought whipped cream to put on the “girl’s” body

The youngest suspect arrested was 19 years old, and the oldest suspect arrested was 60 years old. Including the charges they face in this investigation, the suspects have a combined arrest history of 46 previous felonies and 51 previous misdemeanors.
