ROCKLEDGE, Fla. - Eleven suspects face child sex charges in Brevard County after undercover Sheriff's Office investigators set up a sting operation.
Adults who range in age from 24-69 were arrested in the sting.
Deputies said they targeted individuals seeking sex through Internet ads and scheduled an encounter with a "minor," but the men actually met arresting officers instead.
Some of the suspects brought beer, candy and sex toys with them to the home where they were told they would meet a minor. One of the suspects brought a 17-year-old boy to engage in sex with the minor.
Deputies said they also identified three minors who were victims of sexual exploitation during the investigation.
The suspects were all booked on child sex charges at the Brevard County Jail.
