ORLANDO (WFLA) – An employee of Disney World’s Magic Kingdom was charged with attempted child luring on Tuesday.
Frederick Pohl, Jr., 40, of Clermont, was arrested. A public information officer for the Middle District of Florida confirmed that Pohl was employed at the theme park.
According to the criminal complaint, Pohl tried to arrange a sexual encounter with an 8-year-old girl online.
Pohl believed that he was chatting with the child and her father, but he was actually communicating with an undercover federal agent, the criminal complaint stated.
The complaint states Pohl sent explicit photos of himself and arranged to meet with the child at an Orlando hotel.
When Pohl arrived at the hotel, he was arrested. He was found to be in possession of condoms and a child-sized pink dress, according to investigators.
He is charged with transferring obscene materials to a minor and attempted to entice a minor.
