Disney Employees Among Hundreds Arrested in Major Trafficking Bust

Authorities in Florida have just announced the results of a record-breaking human trafficking operation.

Illegal aliens, a high school teacher, and three Disney employees were among over 200 arrests made during the Polk County, Florida, human trafficking operation.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd revealed during a press conference that the operation earlier this month led to the arrests of 219 people.

According to authorities, the operation was the largest trafficking bust in the history of Polk County.

Sheriff Judd detailed the results of the operation, saying out of 119 prostitutes who were arrested during the operation that began last week, 21 were possible victims of human trafficking.

Two suspects were charged with human trafficking, and both were in the U.S. illegally.

Freddy Escalona, 30, and Maria Guzman, 36, were charged with human trafficking and deriving proceeds from prostitution.

Police said Escalona lent money to a victim to fix her vehicle.

However, after she was unable to pay him back, he allegedly forced her into prostitution.

When Escalona drove the victim to the undercover location, he was taken into custody.

He then admitted to detectives that he had “several females that he worked,” or who paid him to transport them
