Vancouver Police Want to Speak with Women who had Contact with High-Risk Offender

Vancouver Police are asking women to come forward who may have had contact with a high-risk offender who is now facing additional charges.

Forty-five-year-old Trevor Leonard Smith was arrested today for violating court-ordered conditions. Police suspect that Smith was using multiple aliases. He has been convicted of a number of sexual offences in the past, and according to the Corrections Service of Canada, Smith poses a high risk for committing violence against women and sexual offences against children.

Smith moved to Vancouver in November 2017 after completing his sentence. At that time, the VPD issued a warning to advise the public of his court-imposed conditions. Investigators monitoring Smith believe that he has violated several of those conditions, and six counts of breaching a recognizance have been approved by Crown counsel. Smith is in custody.

“The VPD’s High-Risk Offender Unit has been monitoring Smith since he was released. They have learned that Smith may also be identifying himself as Trevor Landry, and Trevor Kevin Williams,” says VPD Constable Jason Doucette. “Detectives would like to hear from any women who may have had contact with Smith since his release in 2017.”

Smith is bound by several court-ordered conditions, which include:

  • not to be at any place where 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,
  • report relationships and friendships with females,
  • not to consume or possess alcohol or drugs, and
  • not to use or possess a computer system, including handheld device allowing unsupervised internet access.

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