‘Operation Guardians of Innocence V’ just resulted in a total of over 1,400 felonies filed against the 17 suspects on Tuesday.
Polk County Florida deputies say the child pornography seized in the raid includes thousands of photos and videos depicting babies, toddlers, and children being forced to engage in sex acts.
Among the notable arrests were two Walt Disney World employees.
A search warrant was executed in Davenport, Florida at a home shared by 32-year-old Justin Hazan and 36-year-old Arlandres Sims. Hazan reportedly told detectives he works at Hollywood Studios as an operator on the Millenium Falcon ride. He reportedly admitted to downloading and possessing child pornography. He was charged with 15 counts.
Hazan’s roommate, Sims, also works at Disney as a food runner at the Animal Kingdom Resort. He was also arrested and charged with 25 counts of child pornography.
Another Davenport man, a registered nurse at Osceola Regional Medical Center, was arrested and charged with five counts of child pornography. Judd said 38-year-old Edgardo Cancela was reported for suspicious actions on Facebook. Judd said Cancela lives at home with his wife and two children, ages 10 and 13.
Stephen Lilly, a 61-year-old Lakeland resident and former Tampa Electric employee, was charged with 100 counts of child pornography. Judd said Lilly told investigators he had only been viewing child pornography for the last two years.
Nabor Molina, a 45-year-old Lakeland resident, was found with child pornography of victims as young as 18-36 months old, Judd said. Additionally, Judd said detectives discovered Molina has been in the country illegally for the last 30 years.
Landen Ulrich, an 18-year-old Lakeland resident, was arrested after detectives found child pornography on his computer of victims as young as six months old. Ulrich was charged with 200 counts of child pornography.
Jonathan Richards, 27, was charged with the most counts of child pornography — 300. Richards lives at home with his parents.
None of the child victims were located in their investigation, but the Polk County Sheriff said he is not done seeking justice.
“We need to know where these babies are so we can rescue them,” said Sheriff Judd. “So let us know.”
This isn’t the first time the Polk County Sheriff’s office has busted Disney employees on child porn charges. Clean your house of mouse, Disney.
