The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office is very pleased to announce that Absconded Sex Offender, 29-year-old Steven Strack, was apprehended and is in the Brevard County Jail under a no bond status.

Strack had been actively eluding arrest since early 2006 and became a fugitive when he failed to register with the Sheriff’s Office Sexual Offender Registration Tracking Unit (SORT) after moving to Brevard County.

He was apprehended by authorities in Taiwan.

Strack was court designated as a Sexual Offender after a conviction in Michigan where the victim was a 9-year-old. He then moved to Florida where he failed to register.

Agents determined that Strack’s mother taught school in South Korea and believed that he had fled the country.

Working with the United States Marshal Service Fugitive Apprehension Unit, the Agents have followed up on tips for the past 9 years.

Strack was finally apprehended when he went to the State Department in Taiwan for a passport.

He was detained after they were alerted to the active warrant for his arrest and contacted The Sheriff’s Office. Strack was transported to New York before being extradited to Brevard County.

The BCSO’s SORT Unit was created in 2005 and currently registers and monitors over 800 court designated sexual offenders and predators.

Agents verify the addresses of Sexual Offenders at a minimum of twice a year. Sexual Predator residences are verified at least four times a year.

Offenders and Predators must register at the Sheriff’s Office during their birth month and then depending on their designation, six months later, or quarterly.

Failure to register is a third-degree felony.

We would like to thank our partners at the United States Marshal Service and the State Department for their continued efforts to locate and bring Strack to justice.
