Sarasota, Fla.-(Newsradio 970 WFLA)-The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office has arrested 12 people in Operation Intercept III, an initiative to protect Sarasota County children from online predators.

Suspects ranging in age from 20-50 responded to Internet-based ads, online apps or social media sites and engaged in sexually explicit written and verbal conversations. One of the suspects is an armed security guard who thought he was going to have sex with a mother and her 12-year-old daughter.

Some of the men sent explicit photos and one brought drugs. A 44-year-old man agreed to get a 14-year-old girl pregnant. Ultimately they all traveled with the intent to have sex with a male or female child.

Here is the list of the people arrested during the three day operation....
