The most recent arrest is one of at least six within the last decade, according to records. He was in the Fulton jail through early July after spending more than a month there on a probation violation.
In 2015, Smith was charged with aggravated assault, kidnapping, robbery and false imprisonment. He was jailed again in 2017 and 2018 on various counts of financial identity fraud, theft by taking and fugitive from justice.
Perhaps most notably, Smith was arrested in 2019 in connection with mail thefts in Milton and Roswell.
Police in both cities received reports of missing mail.
“We got a number of initial reports of people finding mail lying on the ground in neighborhoods and we were able to track that mail to specific victims,” Roswell police spokesman Capt. Charles Barstow said at the time.
He said the case started coming together when Forsyth County sheriff’s deputies reached out and said they pulled over Smith during a traffic stop.
“(They) found a number of mail items in the back seat that didn’t belong to the driver,” Barstow said.
Investigators said Smith drove through neighborhoods at night, opened mailboxes and took the mail. Detectives suspected he was involved in at least 18 mail thefts in Milton and several more in Roswell.
