Harrison sex offender arrested and released despite fourth violation of registry protocals

Albert Wayne Struckle

A Boone County felon with a long line of interactions with law enforcement officials in north-central Arkansas was arrested on Monday and released after just three hours on a charge of Failing to Register as a Sex Offender.

Albert Wayne Struckle, age 33, of Summit was originally arrested for Computer Child Pornography (Class B Felony) in June of 2016. The arrest was the result of an undercover online investigation by the Marion County Sheriff’s Department.

Struckle had made contact and engaged in sexually explicit chats and sent pornographic images of himself, via the internet and cell phone, with who he believed was a 14-year-old girl, from Marion County, In fact, the "girl" was an undercover officer from the Marion County Sheriff's Department. Struckle bonded out at the time on a $25,000 bond.

In March of this year, Struckle was the subject of a press release by the Boone County Sheriff's Office when he moved to a residence on Herb Terry Road in Harrison. He has failed to meet his registration obligations since that time and is being charged as a habitual offender.

In addition to the sex offender registration violation, Struckle has been arrested for hot check violations, theft of property, commercial burglary (seven counts), breaking and entering, and has had four revocations. He was also hit with an order of protection by a female back in 2013.
