ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. -

Seminole County deputies arrested 50 people, including teachers, tourists and college students, in Central Florida in a weeklong online child sex exploitation sting.

According to deputies, the undercover operation, "Operation Cardea," had officers chatting online, through email and phone with people who believed they were talking with a minor or with an adult that had a minor available for sexual activity.

Arrestees ranged from ages 19 to 60 years old and including a Volusia County high school teacher, a tourist visiting from Turkey, school employees, college students and residents from out of state, according to a release.

Deputies said the the offenders traveled from various cities and counties in Florida, the farthest away being from Pasco County, to have sex with children as young as 11 years old.

Deputies made contact with the men on a variety of websites, with some of the men posting on classified ads looking for sex.

The operation was a partnership with agencies from Casselberry, Longwood, Orlando, Oviedo and Sanford police officers, along with Brevard, Orange, Lake Manatee, Osceola, Polk, Sarasota and Volusia County Sheriff's Offices.  The FBI and the FDLE also contributed to the investigation.
