A 49-year-old Gillett man was arrested Friday in an internet sex sting conducted by the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office.
Keith Nelson Luebke’s arrest marks the 26th sex sting the sheriff’s office has conducted so far this year.
According to a probable cause affidavit, the sheriff’s office reached out to Luebke after he posted a suspious online ad seeking a "younger" female.
An investigator messaged Luebke posing as a 15-year-old girl.
According to the affidavit, Luebke made arrangements to meet up with the investigator’s undercover profile in Mayflower, noting he would bring condoms and $100 "to pay the UC for either sexual intercourse or oral." Luebke told the undercover investigator posing as a 15-year-old girl that he would arrive at the predetermined spot around 9:15 a.m. Friday in a white SUV.
Investigators blocked in Luebke’s vehicle when he arrived at the predetermined location at 9:30 a.m.
According to the affidavit, Luebke admitted to "discussing sexual contact and paying for that contact" with a girl he met online. However, he said he would not have followed through with those plans.
Deputies seized multiple firearms, loaded magazines, multiple doses of Viagra, condoms, more than $600 in cash and "large quantities of other prescription medications" as evidence following Luebke’s arrest.
Luebke, who was charged with internet stalking of a child, a Class Y felony, and sexual solicitation, a Class B misdemeanor, is currently free on a $50,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in Faulkner County Circuit Court at 9 a.m. Oct. 16 for a plea and arraignment hearing.
