Child Porn Sting Operation Reels in a Nurse and TWO Disney Employees!


The Polk County PD has been super busy nabbing the bad guys and doing the actual protecting and serving that they're supposed to do. The PCPD arrested a whopping SIXTEEN people during "Operation Guardians of Innocence V" which focused on identifying and arresting those involved in the possession, promotion, and distribution of child pornography.

According to the Polk County Sheriff's office the "pornography" in question wasn't just the occasional photo of a child in a state of undress. “These images are not just pictures of children without clothes. These videos and photographs are horrific images of children being forced to expose their genitalia and forced to perform sex acts – images of children being raped. Those who upload and share child pornography are victimizing children over and over again. Those arrested in this operation create the demand that sustains a child pornographic exploitation distribution pipeline that traumatizes children across the world. Their behavior is disgusting.” said Grady Judd, Polk County Sheriff.

A search warrant was issued for the home of 45-year-old Nabor Molina. Molina reportedly lived at the address with his wife and children. Molina had been pulled over during a traffic stop prior to the search warrant being executed to have him in custody and out of the way. Detectives received National Center for Missing and Endangered Children (NCMEC) tips that child pornography files were being saved to a Google account belonging to that particular home address. The images found on electronic devices taken from the home contained those of child victims as young as 18-36 months old.

Molina is facing 125 counts possession of child pornography.

27-year-old Joshua Charles Johnson is facing 200 counts possession of child pornography.

Stephen Lilly, 61, is facing 100 counts possession of child pornography.

Julian Strong, 28, of Auburndale, faces 100 counts possession of child pornography.

32-year-old Justin Hazan and 36-year-old Arlandres Sims lived together as roommates and were both charged with possession. Hazan was charged with 15 counts and Sims with 25 counts.

Hazan told detectives he works at Walt Disney World as an operator on the Millennium Falcon ride. He admitted to downloading and possessing child pornography.

Sims told detectives that he also works at Walt Disney World as a food runner at the Animal Kingdom Resort. He said he and Hazan met at Broward College in South Florida and recently moved to Davenport together. He admitted to downloading and possessing child pornography. During an initial preview of his computer equipment, detectives located files depicting child pornography.

38-year-old Edgardo Acevedo Cancela was charged with 5 counts possession of child pornography and 5 counts promotion of child pornography.

64-year-old Monty Cottengain faces 20 counts possession of child pornography.

18-year-old Landen Ulrich is facing 200 counts possession of child pornography.

A search warrant was executed at 5012 Hemingway Circle (Southern Dunes) in Haines City, where 35-year-old John Aziz lives. Detectives determined that a computer at that address participated in downloading and sharing images and videos of child pornography. During an initial preview of the equipment, detectives located over 70 files depicting child pornography with victims as young as 18 months old. They seized the equipment for further analysis. He told detectives he is a pharmacist at the Heart of Florida Medical Center. Aziz is facing a laundry list of charges including:

72 counts possession of child pornography – enhanced 13 counts possession of prescription drugs without a prescription 1 count keeping a residence for drug use 1 count possession of codeine 1 count possession of oxycodone 1 count possession of Alprazolam

A search warrant was executed at 1123 Village Place in Davenport, where 59-year-old Herberto Santiago lives with his wife and adult children. Detectives received three NCMEC tips that a computer at that address participated in downloading and sharing images and videos of child pornography. During an initial preview of the equipment, detectives located hundreds of files depicting child pornography with victims as young as five years old. They seized the equipment for further analysis. He told detectives he is unemployed and an Army veteran, and that he receives Social Security benefits. He was taken into custody without incident and charged with 15 counts possession of child pornography – enhanced.

A total of 1,409 felonies were filed against the suspects, with more charges pending. The children shown in the material were as young as six MONTHS old and as old as 13-years-old in what is presumed an international pipeline. All of the men were caught through various social media and file sharing sites.

We applaud the Polk County police department for doing their part in making sure that the children of this world are safe. We PRAY that they can find exactly WHO is making this sick stuff and cut the whole production off at the head.

In the meantime, we celebrate this win for justice!
