Police report seizing 26 firearms after arresting Brunswick man out on bail

By Beth Brogan, Times Record

BRUNSWICK, Maine — Local police on Friday arrested a 42-year-old Woodland Road man after he allegedly assaulted his daughter. Police then seized 26 guns from his home.

Robert A. Smith, 42, was arrested during a felony traffic stop on River Road at approximately 6:30 p.m. Friday, Brunswick police Capt. Mark Waltz said in a press release.

Seven patrol cars went to where the vehicle was stopped near the Brunswick Golf Course.

Smith was charged with domestic violence assault based on allegations by his 18-year-old daughter, Deputy Chief Marc Hagan said Monday.

He also was charged with violation of condition of release because he had been released on bail from Androscoggin County Superior Court, where he faces the charge of criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, according to Waltz.

After Smith consented to a search of his Woodland Road home, officers seized 26 weapons, Hagan said. Smith is prohibited by bail conditions from possessing firearms.

Brunswick police also charged Smith with terrorizing at 25 Woodland Drive on Feb. 2, 2012, according to The Times Record archives.

He was in Cumberland County Jail on Monday morning, scheduled to appear in court later in the day.
