Seventeen suspects accused of downloading or distributing child pornography have been arrested and charged, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Department in Florida.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd on Tuesday detailed a number of the arrests, including two Disney World employees, a nurse, an undocumented immigrant, and an IT specialist who Judd said liked to buy and digest soiled underwear.

The undercover takedown, dubbed "Operation Guardians of Innocence V," resulted in more than 1,400 felonies.

Deputies say the pornography included thousands of photos and videos of babies, toddlers, and children forced to engage in sex acts.

Judd reported that none of the child victims were discovered during their investigation. He pleaded for the public's help in locating the victims.

"We need to know where these babies are so we can rescue them," he said. "So let us know."
