Convicted of a number of sexual offences in the past, Smith moved to Vancouver in November 2017 after completing his sentence. At the time, Vancouver police issued a warning advising the public of his court-ordered conditions, which included: not to be at any place where anyone under the age of 16 are present, or can reasonably be expected; no contact with anyone under 16; reporting relationships and friendships with females; not to consume or possess alcohol or drugs, or enter a bar, tavern or liquor store; and not to use, or possess, a computer system, including handheld device, allowing unsupervised internet access.

According to the Corrections Service, Smith poses a high risk for committing violence against women and sexual offences against children.

Media relations officer Const. Jason Doucette said officers monitoring Smith believe he violated several of those conditions and was using multiple aliases, including Trevor Landry and Trevor Kevin Williams.

“The VPD’s High-Risk Offender Unit has been monitoring Smith since he was released,” Doucette said in a news release.

“Detectives would like to hear from any women who may have had contact with Smith since his release in 2017.”

Smith remains in police custody and has been charged with six counts of breaching a recognizance.

Anyone who may have information about Trevor Leonard Smith violating any of these conditions is asked to call investigators at 604-717-0603.
