REEDSPORT, Ore. - A man wanted by authorities in the state of Texas for Indecency with a Child was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon. On Tuesday, January 16, 2019, a deputy assigned to the Reedsport Patrol Office observed a green 1996 Toyota Camry traveling northbound in the 2000-block of Highway 101 commit a minor traffic violation. The deputy initiated a traffic stop and contacted the operator of the vehicle who did not provide a drivers license or any form of identification. The male driver, later identified as 40 year-old Brian Edward Smith of Deadwood, Oregon, initially gave the deputy a false name and date of birth. The deputy detained Smith and located a wallet on his person which provided his true identity. A records check revealed Smith had a warrant out for his arrest from the State of Texas for crimes of Child Abuse-Indecency with a Child. He was lodged temporarily at the Reedsport Municipal Jail and later transferred to the Douglas County Jail. He is being held on the no bail warrant awaiting extradition to Texas.
