SUMMARY:

The FBI created a fake travel agency, "Costa Rica Taboo Vacations," that offered to complete travel vacations for individuals to travel to Costa Rica and have sexual relations with minors. George C. Clarke purchased a ticket from this agency to go to Costa Rica and have sexual relations with two 12-year-old girls. Clarke, who was employed as a middle school teacher, repeatedly requested sexual relations with the girls, even specifying the sexual acts he wanted them to perform. He was apprehended at Miami International Airport, attempting to board a plane to Costa Rica with condoms in his luggage. He was one of 11 people arrested in the sting.
