Authorities said four Disney employees were among 108 people arrested as part of a human trafficking operation in Florida.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd announced Wednesday that more than 100 people have been arrested as part of Operation “March of Grief 2,” a classified six-day operation.

While most of the arrests have involved people accused of human trafficking or inciting prostitution, the mayor’s office has also suspended four arrests for alleged crimes against children.

“This is huge,” said Grady Judd, the sheriff of Polk County.
“Four arrests this size are simply amazing.”

According to the sheriff’s office, there were also four Disney employees among the 108 arrests, including a man who worked as a lifeguard at a Disney Polynesia village resort.

Xavier Jackson, 27, who used to work as a bouncer at the resort, is accused of sending sexual pictures and video descriptions of “what he wanted to do” to an undercover detective disguised as a 14-year-old girl, according to police.

. Representatives said Jackson also bragged about working as a lifeguard at the resort.

Investigators from the department said they identified prostitutes posting ads online as well as “Jones” who responded to the ads.

The authorities said they intended to identify and release any victims who were forced into prostitution and anyone involved in trafficking victims.

Investigators also said they have identified and investigated adults who have engaged in online communications with people they believe are children, with the intent of committing sexual acts with them.

The sheriff’s office said four men were arrested as a result.
