Ostensibly, often when a sex or human trafficking sting occurs, there are reportedly always some arrests made on employees working for The Walt Disney Company.

As reported by Fox35, in “Operation Fall Haul II,” a Disney Cast Member and a photographer were among the 160 people who were arrested in a sex sting set up by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO). According to the authorities, the arrested responded to an online escort advertisement and agreed to meet up for sex.

In a meeting with the media, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd reportedly shared that they “always have Disney employees” when they undergo these operations. “The online prostitution industry enables traffickers and allows for the continued victimization of those who are being trafficked,” added Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.

Per Fox News,

PCSO began “Operation Fall Haul II” on Aug. 29 and was assisted by multiple police departments, as well as social services organizations, the Office of the State Attorney 10th Judicial Circuit, and members from the Florida Department of Children and Families.

The sex sting resulted in a total of 52 felonies and 216 misdemeanors.
