More than three dozen people including teacher-pro golfer snagged in Internet sex sting www.privateofficer.com
KISSIMMEE, Fla.Jan 18 2012 - More than three dozen people, including an eighth-grade teacher, a head swim coach and a professional golfer, were arrested in an undercover Internet child sex operation in Osceola County.
Sheriff’s detectives recently concluded Operation Red Cheeks, a week-long, multi-agency operation that resulted in the arrests of 40 suspects who were charged with soliciting sex from a child via the Internet and other sex and drug related crimes.
Alexander Roy, 32, of Port St. Lucie, who teaches eighth grade, was arrested on numerous charges, including traveling to seduce a child to commit sex acts.
Stephen Wesley Thomas, 55, of Meridian, Miss., a professional golfer on the Senior PGA Tour, was also arrested on several charges, including use of a computer to seduce, solicit or entice a parent.
Bryan Allan Woodward, 29, of Gainesville, the head coach of Gator Swim Club, was arrested on charges of traveling to seduce a child to commit sex acts and use of a computer to solicit a child for sex.
The operation was conducted from Jan. 8 to Jan. 16. Business professionals and eight college students were among the other arrestees.
During the operation, undercover detectives from numerous Central Florida agencies posed as juveniles or the parent or guardian of a juvenile to talk with individuals in chat rooms and instant messaging programs on the Internet.
Suspects traveled to an undercover house or secondary meeting location in Osceola County with the purpose of having sex with a child, authorities said. During the chats, some of the suspects sent pornographic images to the undercover detectives and they also brought alcohol, drugs and other items to the meeting, deputies said.
One suspect traveled from Georgia and another was on vacation from Alaska, but most were from Florida. All the suspects were arrested in Osceola County.
“This operation should also be a warning to all parents to monitor and be involved with their child’s computer activities,” Osceola County Sheriff Bob Hansell said.
