U.S. & World

(WFLA)  Authorities have arrested more than 100 people in an undercover sting targeting prostitution, human trafficking and child predators in Polk County, including a pastor and two people who work at Orlando theme parks.

The six-day investigation, dubbed “Operation Santa’s Naughty List” aimed to identify and help victims of human trafficking who might have been forced into prostitution.

Detectives arrested a Disney security guard named Rodney Davis, 56, of Winter Garden for soliciting prostitution.

“This guy walked up to the front door of this home in a neighborhood on a cool evening buck naked,” said Sheriff Judd.

A video shows how his arrest unfolded.

A total of 124 people were arrested, five of which had the intent to sexually harm a child, Judd said. Fifty-three people were arrested for prostitution, a second-degree misdemeanor, and 46 were arrested for seeking the services of a prostitute, a first-degree misdemeanor, Judd said.

The still also netted Tommy Gainey, a professional golfer and member of the PGA.

He told the sheriff’s office he was in town for a charity golf event.
