Former Lexington Cop Charged with Multiple Crimes

lexington-police(AP) — A former Lexington police officer has been arrested on a warrant charging him with burglary, criminal trespass and official misconduct.

49-year-old Terrance Smith was arrested at his home Wednesday. His bond was set at $500. The case was investigated by Nebraska State Patrol and is being prosecuted by the Nebraska Attorney General’s Office.

Smith is accused of entering Landmark Implement near Lexington after business hours on May 19, while on duty and without a law enforcement purpose. Landmark is just outside of the Lexington patrol jurisdiction. Suspicion about Smith entering the business was reported to the police department on June 7, and Smith was fired three days later.

A public phone listing for Smith could not be found.
