    1 of 3 2 of 3

      A high-risk sex offender has been re-released from jail and the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) and the Correctional Service of Canada are warning the public that he plans to live in Vancouver once again.

      According to the Vancouver Police Department (VPD), Trevor Leonard Smith is a 46-year-old federal offender who poses a high risk of relationship and sexual violence, particularly to children.

      He had been previously convicted of sexual assault, both accessing and possession of child pornography, assault causing bodily harm, and failure to comply with a court order.

      Smith had moved to Vancouver in November 2017 after he had completed his sentence, and the VPD had issued a public warning about him.

      However, he was arrested on March 15 of this year as he had been suspected of violating several court-ordered conditions, and the VPD sought to speak with any woman who had been in contact with him since his release.

      Smith is described as a white male who is 178 centimetres (five-feet, 10-inches) tall and weighs 77 kilograms (170 pounds). He has grey hair and blue eyes.

      He also uses other surnames, including identifying himself as Trevor Landry and Trevor Kevin Williams.

      The conditions of his re-release from prison include the following court orders that require him to:

      • keep the peace and be of good behaviour;
      • report to a probation officer;
      • reside at a place approved by a probation officer;
      • remain in British Columbia;
      • advise a probation officer of relationships and friendships with females;
      • not to consume or possess any controlled substances;
      • have no contact, directly or indirectly, with anyone under 16 years old;
      • not to attend any public park, school ground, recreational centre, skating rink or public swimming pool, public swimming area, community centre, playground, or any other place where a person under 16 years old is reasonable or expected to be present;
      • not to use or possess a computer or access the internet, except with prior permission of a probation officer;
      • not to possess or access any data encryption, electronic storage device, or computer software without written permission of a probation officer.

      Anyone who sees or knows of Smith violating any of these conditions is asked to call 911 immediately.
