Disney employee Zachary Hudson among 12 suspected sex offenders arrested in undercover operation

A Disney World employee was among 12 men arrested by Florida law enforcement for allegedly soliciting children for sex online, officials said.

The suspects, ages 20 to 67, face a total of 49 felony charges after a two-week undercover investigation titled “Operation Child Protector II,” the Polk County Sheriff’s Office said Friday.

Among those arrested is Zachary Hudson, 30, who was employed as a bus driver at Disney World, police said.

Between June 4 and 5, Hudson allegedly exchanged online messages with an undercover detective posing as a 15-year-old girl.

The detective asked Hudson if he had a problem with the fact that she was only 15, to which he replied as long as “you don’t mind my getting older,” according to authorities. He is said to have later told her, “Age is just a number.”

The conversation switched to text messages, where Hudson described the sexual acts he planned to do with her, according to police. He also sent the girl a nude photo, police officers said.

“What would an operation — either a pornography investigation or a predator operation or a human trafficking operation — be without a Disney employee? We always have a Disney employee,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told WKMG-TV.

The police arrested 12 people between the ages of 20 and 67 during the operation.

Police obtained an arrest warrant for Hudson and he was taken into custody in Orlando.

He appeared to be in his Disney World uniform when he was arrested, according to a mug shot obtained by the outlet.

He is charged with one count of using a two-way communication device to commit a felony and one count of transmitting material harmful to minors and is indicted in the Orange County Jail.
