Deputies: Man used bouncy house to prey on children

Posted: Updated:
CLEARWATER BEACH (FOX 13) -

The sheriff's office has arrested a 33-year-old man in Clearwater Beach for allegedly using his position as a bouncy house attendant to seduce young girls.

Leonardo Lopez-Navarro admitted to the crime, deputies say, as it relates to two 12-year-old girls, who met Navarro when he was attending a bouncy house and inflatable slides on the beach.

Detectives say Lopez-Navarro exchanged phone numbers with the girls and gave them free access to the bouncy house and slides.

The parents of the children eventually found explicit text messages, which included solicitation of nude photos, and discovered Navarro had inappropriate physical contact with them.

The sheriff's office is trying to figure out what other victims there may be out there.

If you have anything to report, call (727) 582-6200.
