The Washoe County Sheriff's Office reports that three other victims have come forward to report allegations of sexual contact with Carl "Wayne" Smith, a 65-year-old Reno resident. One of the three female juvenile victims was only 15-year-old at the time she met Smith.

The Sheriff's Crimes versus Children Unit seeks information on anyone who may have been victimized by Smith. Smith allegedly provided trips and gifts for underage girls in exchange for his sexual gratification.

On Thursday, February 14, Sheriff's Detectives charged Smith with three additional counts of Luring a Child as well as three additional counts of Open and Gross Lewdness. As a result of the other offenses, Smith remains in the Washoe County Sheriff's Office Detention Facility with a revised bail set at $97,500.

Deputies believe he is also tied to two reports of luring in December.

Sheriff's Detectives believe Smith may have victimized other juvenile females that live in the area. These persons, parents or acquaintances are urged to contact Detective Liles immediately at 775-328-3327. Victim Advocate services will be made available upon request.

Anyone having information relating to this crime or the suspect(s) should contact the Washoe County Sheriff's Office at (775) 328-3320, Secret Witness at (775) 322-4900, www.secretwitness.com, or text the tip to 847411 (TIP 411) keyword - SW.
