CLERMONT, Fla. (AP) --

Thirty-two men are behind bars in central Florida after being caught in an undercover sex-sting operation.

The Lake County Sheriff's Office announced the arrests Tuesday.

Sheriff Gary Borders says the men used chat rooms and websites
to make contact with people they thought were 9 to 14-year-old
children. Instead, they were corresponding with undercover
detectives.

Some men traveled as far as Georgia to a vacation rental in
Clermont where the sting went down. The men brought candy with
them. One man had a handgun. Another man was arrested with his two young children in the backseat of his car.

The men, ages 19 to 63, were charged with traveling to meet a
minor for sex, obscene communication with a computer and lewd and
lascivious behavior.
