More than a dozen men in central Florida, including two Walt Disney World employees, have been arrested as part of a sting operation that targeted child pornography distributors.
Justin Hazan, 32, and roommate Arlandres Sims, 36, were among the 16 men arrested by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office and charged with a collective 1,409 felonies for possession and distribution of child pornography, Sheriff Grady Judd announced during Tuesday’s press conference. The sting was known as “Operation Guardians of Innocence V.”
Hazan, who was charged with 15 counts of possession of child pornography, operated the Millennium Falcon ride at the park.
Sims, who worked as a food runner at Animal Kingdom Resort, was charged with 25 counts of possession of child pornography.

“Every time one of these folks receives, downloads, uploads the victim, a child victim who’s being sexually battered or [is] in a provocative position, that child is victimized once again,” Judd said.
Many of the victims involved in the operation were under a year old at the time they were “being attacked or sexually attacked in video or in photographs,” Judd said.
“It shows you how deviant [the suspects] are,” he continued.

The suspects range in age from 18 to 64 and include a hospital pharmacist and a registered nurse.
John Aziz, 35, worked as a pharmacist at the Heart of Florida Medical Center and was charged with 72 counts possession of child pornography.
“That’s enough to send him to prison for a long time,” Judd said, noting some of the pornography possessed by Aziz included children as young as 18 months old.
Edgardo Acevedo Cancela, a 38-year-old registered nurse at Osceola Regional Medical Center, was charged with five counts of possession of child pornography as well as five counts of promotion of child pornography. He’s a married father of a 10-year-old and a 13-year-old.
The youngest suspect, 18-year-old Landen Ulrich, was charged with 200 counts possession of child pornography. He lives at home with his parents and younger siblings and the pornography files he had showed victims as young as just 6 months old.
“These are the ghosts, the criminals that are dangerous to the most delicate victims that we’ll ever have,” Judd said, appealing to authorities nationwide. “Go after them with a vengeance and lock them up.”

I've seen the publication of more and more of these things recently and I am very excited to see the fact that they are hunting these guys down. It would be so much better if they could get to the sources that are putting the stuff out initially though. I'd love to see more of them go down than just the consumers of it.

I don’t have links currently but Europe is exploding with discoveries and round ups. There was a cave or underground bunker system they just found with several torture rooms in it. And hundreds of arrests or indictments to boot.

One of those things Trump said he was going to do that never got any coverage. DOJ has been hot and heavy working on this stuff since he got in office.
