Disney World Employee, Boy Scout Driver Arrested in Child Porn Sting

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. –  Florida investigators have arrested men employed by Walt Disney World and Legoland in a child pornography sting that included nine other suspects and resulted in the death of another.  It involved images of children as young as 3 years old.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office said those arrested include a Disney World costume department manager and a Legoland employee who builds models at the park.  One suspect, 21-year-old Andres Estrada, was shot and killed when he attacked a deputy and reached for her gun.

“These people are subhuman,” Sheriff Grady Judd offered at an afternoon press conference on Wednesday.  “They are scary people.”

The sting was named, “Guardians of Innocence II” and took down nine other suspects.  Those suspects included a high school student, a Boy Scouts driver, college students, and an 84-year-old retired engineer. Another was a 69-year-old retired teacher who had an annual pass to Disney, which investigators say he often visited alone.
