Runaway Inmate Found in Brunswick, GA

| June 24, 2014

Marvin-Smith-Newest LOWNDES COUNTY, GA – An inmate that walked out of the Valdosta Transitional Center has been found.

Marvin Smith, an inmate at the Valdosta Transitional Center, failed to return to the facility shortly after midnight on June 12. Smith was incarcerated for a motor vehicle conviction in Glynn County.

The night of Smith’s disappearance, a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee was stolen in close proximity to the Transition Center. The Jeep Cherokee believed to have been taken and driven by Marvin Smith was located by Glynn County Police on Thursday of last week. The discovery of the vehicle and eyewitness accounts led to the confirmation that Marvin Smith was in the Brunswick, Georgia area and he was arrested sometime following.

Smith has since been picked up by Lowndes County deputies and brought back to Valdosta. He is currently in the Lowndes County Jail. He will appear in the Lowndes County Magistrate Court for an arraignment hearing this afternoon and will most likely be returned to the custody of the Georgia Department of Corrections after that hearing.
