A 27-year-old Disney worker was arrested after he traveled to a parking lot in Orange County believing he was going to have sex with a 14-year-old he met online, according to authorities.
Brian Fries, who told officers he was a tour guide on Disney's Jungle Cruise ride, was taken into custody by Orange County sex crimes unit Thursday night.
Detectives said Fries engaged in online communications with an undercover officer who he believed was a 14-year-old. He thought he was meeting the girl Thursday night for oral sex, police said.
Officers searched Fries' vehicle after his arrest and found some Disney playing cards and a bottle of rum that an undercover detective had asked him to bring to the scheduled encounter.
"I just want to apologize to my parents," Fries said. "I'm sorry mom and dad. You raised me better than this. I'm sorry."
Orange County Sheriff's Detective Jason McMullen said finding men seeking sex with children online is not difficult.
"I can log on any time and find somebody," McMullen said. "They have to be explicit to commit the crime. And they have to talk about specific sexual acts that are going to be committed when they meet."
Detectives said other men were also arrested by the sex crimes unit Thursday.
