POLK COUNTY, FL (WFLA) - Polk deputies acted on numerous complains about sexual activity at the Saddle Creek Park when they set up an undercover operation. It yielded to several arrests on different charges on Thursday.

Deputies arrested five men from 46 to 63 years old. They were all in the park when they were arrested. Some suggested to perform certain sex acts on the undercover officers, others requested those acts.

The oldest man arrested, Mickie W. Meyer, 63, also had drugs and drug paraphernalia on him.

Saddle Creek Park is located between Winter Haven and Lakeland in Polk County; it is one of the largest parks in Central Florida, according to the park's website.

“Our residents visit county parks with the expectations of relaxing with family and friends as they fish, bike, picnic, and enjoy time together," said Sheriff Grady Judd. "They do not expect to see lewd behavior, and neither do we. If you choose to commit illegal acts in our parks, you will be arrested and booked into the Polk County Jail."
