30 arrested in online sexual predator sting

  • 6

SARASOTA - The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office has arrested 30 people in Operation Intercept II, the second such sting to protect Sarasota County’s children from online predators.

One after another, suspects approached the door of the decoy house; and one by one, they're placed in handcuffs.  "It's just amazing that people who are prowling the internet, looking for an opportunity to have sex with a child.  It's just disturbing," said Sarasota Sheriff Tom Knight.

Detectives, posing as minors online, chatted with suspects looking for sex with kids, using social media and dating sites.

"One individual traveled from Port Orange, Florida, which is nearly two hundred miles," said Knight.

The youngest suspect was 21-year-old Glenn Beiling, while the oldest was 64-year-old Daniel Klimowicz. Both men thought they were there to have sex with a teenage boy.

While many can be heard claiming they've done nothing wrong, authorities say items they brought along tell a different story, with many bringing condoms. Some suspects brought alcohol, others crack cocaine, but authorities say Robert Blackburn of Ft. Myers brought with him a "sex kit" containing items used for torture including whips and a leather mask.

37-year-old Paul Andrews of Clearwater even asked police if he could leave because his pets were in the car.  "I have my dog in there, my service animal, I have two snakes in there," said Andrews on surveillance video.

Knight says while the operation was a success, it should be an eye opener to parents everywhere.

"The best opportunity to get it stopped is for parents, guardians, adults, to be engaged and make sure that they know what they're children are on the internet, what they're doing, and that this doesn't happen, it starts at home," said Knight.
