Sex Offender Sting Nabs SEVERAL Disney Employees Two of Which Wanted to Role Play with a Minor!


A sexual predator sting in Florida brought in some of the most vile predators some have seen in quite some time. Florida officials conducted a six day investigation, called “Operation Child Protector,” where they arrested a whopping SEVENTEEN child sex predators!


According to WFLA the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, 16 suspects are from around Clewiston, Davenport, Kissimmee, Orlando, Polk City, and Zephyrhills. One was a visitor to the area from Los Angeles.


Sheriff Grady Judd said all of them intended to engage in sexual activity with what they believed were children, but instead, they encountered undercover officers who were posing as children online.


“These are nasty, nasty, nasty people, and when we go through this, understand that obviously, we can’t even use the words they used,” Judd said. “We obviously can’t show you the pictures and the video clips that they sent to what they thought were 13-year-old little girls and little boys.



Among these suspects were several employees at Disney World.


One couple, Savannah Lawrence McGrew and Jonathan McGrew, wanted to engage into engage in a threesome with a 13-year-old girl and role play as step parents and stepdaughter or in a shoplifting situation. To make matters even worse, the McGrew's work in areas at Disney where they would have access to closed off and private spaces. Both are said to have worked as custodians as Walt Disney Hollywood Studios.



“Are you kidding me? That’s how you’re talking to 13-year-old children,” Judd said. The scenarios were crazy but Judd couldn't get over the fact that these adults were using lewd language on the internet trying to bait and seduce children!


Another suspect, Kenneth Javier Aquino, was a lifeguard at Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge who Judd said left his pregnant girlfriend to have sex with someone he thought was a child. Judd said he was dressed in his work clothes when he came to the undercover location.



“He’s a Navy veteran,” the sheriff said. “That’s right. He was working toward a dive team or a SEAL team or some kind of special ops job. They did a background check on him and found he had friends or affiliates that were gang members, and they tossed him.”
