11 men nabbed by Orlando police in child predator sting

Nearly a dozen men, ranging in age from 18 to 77, were arrested by the Orlando Police Department as part of a multi-agency investigation targeting suspected child predators.

According to OPD, “Operation CACHE” began on May 9, 2024, and it involved OPD detectives, in conjunction with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Homeland Security Investigations, Secret Service agents, the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Altamonte Springs Police Department, Port Orange Police Department, and Sanford Police Department.

During the operation, detectives posed as minors and parents with access to minors in order to locate online predators who wanted to have sex with children.

OPD stated that the following six men were arrested during Operation CACHE when they traveled to a predetermined location in Orlando to meet with a child that they believed was 13 or 14 years old:

  • Stanley Champagne, 35, of Orlando. He is being charged with obscene communication – traveling to meet after using a computer to lure a child, attempted lewd or lascivious battery, solicitation of a minor via computer, unlawful use of a two-way communication device, and obscene material – transmitting information harmful to minors.

He is being charged with solicitation of a minor via computer, unlawful use of a two-way communication device, obscene communication – travel to meet after using a computer to lure a child, attempted lewd or lascivious battery, and attempted enticement of a minor.

In addition, the following five men were nabbed during the operation after warrants were issued for their arrests:

  • James Bradley Winston, 77, of Lakeland. He is being charged with solicitation of a minor via computer, unlawful use of a two-way communication device, and obscene material – transmitting information harmful to minors.
  • Jessie James Turner II, 30, of Orlando. He is being charged with solicitation of a minor via computer and unlawful use of a two-way communication device.
  • Daniel Moy Hilaryo Hidalgo, 27, of Port Richey. He is being charged with solicitation of a minor via computer, unlawful use of a two-way communication device, and obscene material – transmitting information harmful to minors.
  • Justin Joel Acevedo, 25, of Kissimmee. He is being charged with solicitation of a minor via computer, unlawful use of a two-way communication device, and obscene material – transmitting information harmful to minors.
  • Jonathan Robert Rodriguez, 18, of Orlando. He is being charged with obscene communication – using a computer to solicit a parent/guardian and unlawful use of a two-way communication device.  

According to Orlando police, one of the suspects, Jermaurey Joshua Aaron Bonner, allegedly told investigators that he was trying to become a local youth pastor.

Two of the suspects, Ross Nathaniel Greenhill and Jonathan Robert Rodriguez, are accused of soliciting an agent posing as a parent to have sex with a 13-year-old girl.

Another suspect, Altravias Jaabar King, was released from prison on March 1, 2024, for attempted homicide after serving a 10-year sentence. At the time of his arrest, he was on parole.

“Some of the men arrested also transmitted images of their genitals, pornographic videos, and other images that may be harmful to minors, in addition to soliciting minors or parents with access to minors for sex with children during the undercover operation,” stated OPD on social media.

The police department added that three of these cases have been adopted federally and the suspects will be prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office. The remaining eight cases will be prosecuted by the State Attorney’s Office for the Ninth Judicial Circuit.

The Orlando Police Department is reminding parents to monitor the social media and online accounts of their children, and to report any incidents to their local police department or sheriff’s office.
