Some 50 people were arrested during an online child-sex sting in Seminole County, Fla. on Sunday, including four people who worked at schools.

The sting operation resulted in the arrest of a middle school science teacher, a translator, a high school teacher and a school janitor — all from different schools. According to officials at Ocoee Middle School, the accused science teacher passed a background check when he was hired in 2002.

The suspects were arrested during “Operation Cardea,” in which police officers posed as underage kids in online chat rooms. The undercover officers then agree to meet with the suspects at a specific location. The suspects believe they will be engaging in sex with a child between the ages of 11 and 15.

All 50 men have been charged with soliciting a minor for sex.
