ORLANDO, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – Police arrested 16 people, including Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando employees, in a sex sting operation.

The sting, titled Operation Cyber Child III, was conducted by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office. The deputies focused on adults who wanted to meet minors for sexual activity and to target child pornography.

WKMG-TV reports that the operation was divided into two phases. The first phase resulted in three arrests for possession of child pornography. The second phase totaled 13 arrests for those accused of wanting to have sex with who they believed were underage boys and girls.

The station reported that Universal Studios employee Matthew “Cody” Myers was arrested on several charges, including traveling to meet after using a computer to lure a child.

WKMG also reported that two Disney employees were among those arrested.

Two college students were also arrested.

“Some have not gotten the message,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told the station.  “We are going to continue to conduct these investigation to protect our children from sexual predators and from those who trade and download child pornography.”
