Over a year after a high-risk sex offender moved to live in Vancouver, he is facing additional charges and police are seeking to speak with any women who may have come into contact with him.
Trevor Leonard Smith was arrested today (March 15) for violating court-ordered conditions and is in custody.
According to Corrections Services of Canada, he poses a high risk for committing violence against women and sexual offences against children. He had previously been convicted of several sexual offences in the past.
He had moved to Vancouver in November 2017, after he had completed his sentence for sexual assault, accessing and possessing of child pornography, assault causing bodily harm, and failure to comply with a recognizance. The VPD had issued a public warning about his conditions at that time.
The VPD High-Risk Offender Unit had been monitoring Smith and investigators believe that he violated several conditions and Crown counsel approved six counts of breaching a recognizance.
He also may have been using multiple aliases, possibly identifying himself as Trevor Landry and Trevor Kevin Williams.
Smith’s court-ordered conditions include:
- not be at anywhere children and/or youth under the age of 16 years are present or can reasonably be expected;
- no contact, direct or indirect, with children and/or youth 16 years of age or under;
- all relationships and friendships with females must be reported;
- not to consume or possess alcohol or drugs;
- not to use or possess a computer system, including handheld device allowing unsupervised internet access.
Any women who may have had contact with Smith or who has information about Smith violating his conditions is asked to call the VPD at 604-717-0603.More
