NJ Marshals officials said Smith, 34, was wanted by NJ State Parole and the Trenton Police Department since February 2022 for Robbery and a Parole Violation. 

Officials said Smith, who was already on parole for a 2014 robbery conviction, allegedly committed Robbery by Force, specifically by running over an employee of Hawk’s Tow Yard in Trenton with a vehicle she was attempting to steal from the tow yard in February. 

NYNJ-RFTF and NJ State Parole, a full-time participant on the NYNJ-RFTF, conducted a comprehensive investigation and were eventually able to locate Smith and arrest her without incident.

The investigation continues.
