Magic Kingdom employee arrested for attempted child luring


ORLANDO (WFLA) – An employee of Disney World’s Magic Kingdom was arrested for attempted child luring on Tuesday.

Frederick Pohl, Jr., 40, of Clermont, is charged. 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 he was chatting with the child and her father, but he was actually communicating with an undercover federal agent.

When Pohl arrived at the hotel, he was arrested. He was found to be in possession of condoms and a child-sized pink dress.

He is charged with transferring obscene materials to a minor and attempted to entice a minor.

Anyone with additional information on this case should contact Homeland Security Investigations at 1-866-DHS-2ICE.
