Fugitive suspected of stealing guns in Lebanon burglaries

By Kimberley Haas, Foster's Daily Democrat

LEBANON, Maine — The U.S. Marshals-N.H. Joint Task Force is asking for the public’s help in apprehending a man who is accused of stealing firearms in local burglaries.

Authorities say he is considered armed and dangerous.

Deputy U.S. Marshal Jeffrey White said Timothy Wayne Smith is wanted on an arrest warrant issued by the New Hampshire Department of Corrections Parole Board. Smith is on parole because of a prior conviction and sentence for receiving stolen property.

“He has been basically on the run according to his petty parole officer. He is not living where he is supposed to be,” White said.

Smith has become the prime suspect in “multiple” burglaries in Lebanon, Maine. White said firearms were stolen during the burglaries but did not know if handguns or shotguns were taken.

Smith is 22 years old. He has been described as a white male who is 5 feet 9 inches tall. Smith weighs approximately 155 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes.

According to White, Smith has tattoos on his right and left forearms. On his right forearm there is “1990,” a scorpion and a demon face. On his left forearm there is a Boston Red Sox tattoo.

Officials are encouraging the public to call the U.S. Marshals Joint Fugitive Task Force with any information that could lead to Smith’s arrest. Their number is 225-1632.

You can also contact your local police department with information about Smith’s whereabouts, White said.
