160 people were arrested in Florida. Deputies have titled the number of arrests “Fall Haul 2.” The Polk County Sheriff’s Office and other agencies held a seven-day operation focused on human trafficking.
School teachers, a state corrections officer, and a Disney employee were arrested. 15 arrests involved people from outside of Florida, including a deputy police chief from Georgia, Jason DiPrima.
The Hill reported:
“DiPrima wasn’t the only government employee to be arrested. A corrections officer with Lake Correctional Institution, 24-year-old Keith Nieves, of Orlando, was also arrested after trying to have sex with a prostitute who turned out to be an undercover detective, according to the sheriff’s office.”
Cameron Burke used to work at a high school as a computer technician. He was accused of having sex with a 15-year-old student at Oak Ridge High School in Orange County.
“Meanwhile, two currently employed teachers were also caught by deputies trying to engage in sex acts with a prostitute.
The sheriff’s office said Carlos Gonzalez, 36, of Davenport was a Math teacher at New Dimensions High School in Osceola County. According to Judd, Gonzalez said he was just going to give the two prostitutes money and leave without having sex, but he was arrested anyway.
The other teacher was John Layton, 26, of Gotha, who worked as a physical education teacher at West Orange High School in Orange County. The sheriff’s office said he was caught after trying to pay an undercover $40 for a sex act.
Sheriff Judd gave a briefing on the “Fall Haul 2.” He went over a couple of people they arrested. John Glass was from Verona, Kentucky, and owned a few Dominos. The sheriff made a few jokes about delivering pizzas on time. Meanwhile, many were remembering Pizzagate.
The sheriff moved on and said:
“Where would we be with an undercover operation and no Disney employees? We always have Disney employees.”
His comments were about Guillermo Perez, a bellhop at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.
Fox35 Orlando reported:
“Guillermo Perez, a bellhop at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orange County, was taken into custody on a charge of soliciting a prostitute. The 57-year-old Winter Garden man reportedly agreed to pay $80 for a quick visit to have sex with an undercover detective.
Samy Claude, 26, was also arrested on the same charge. The Orlando independent photographer is often contracted by Disney, law enforcement said. When he arrived at the home, he reportedly brought the detective a bag of sour Skittles.”
In March, Polk County Sheriff’s office identified four Disney employees arrested in another massive undercover operation called “March Sadness 2.” It was a six-day operation that led to 108 people being arrested.
Xavier Jackson was a lifeguard at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.
“Jackson worked as a lifeguard at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Sheriff Grady Judd said. He allegedly sent photos showing him “doing things that’s totally inappropriate” and bragged about working at the resort, the sheriff said.
Jackson was arrested and charged with three counts of harmful material and one count of unlawful communication.
The three other Disney employees were identified as Ralph Leese, 45; Shubham Malave, 27; and Wilakson Fidele, 24. They were all charged with soliciting a prostitute, Judd said.”
There will always be Disney employees in these sting operations. So much for a place famed for dreams coming true.
