Thirteen child-sex predators have been arrested by Florida in a six-day undercover sting, Operation Cyber Guardian.
Police posed as children online from 2 to 7 October creating fake profiles on social media and dating sites.
Amongst those arrested was 39-year-old Georgios Kiragiannis of Orlando who works as a manager at Fed Ex.
According to Newsweek, on 6 October 2018, Kiragiannis allegedly posted an advertisement on a bulletin board site which indicated he was seeking out a younger female “friend with benefits”.
Over a series of emails, Kiragiannis said he would offer gifts in exchange for a girl he believed as 14 years old performing sex acts with him.
He sent four pornographic images depicting various acts and asked the young girl if she would perform the acts depicted in the photos with him and offered a new iPhone 8plus to her in exchange.
He then traveled to the undercover residence and was arrested without incident, however, during a search, detectives found a new unwrapped iPhone 8, various sex toys, condoms, lubricant and male enhancement pills. Kiragiannis is a manager at Fed Ex.
