MILFORD – On July 21, Milford Police arrested and charged a 24-year-old Magnolia man stemming from an incident that occurred on July 20 at a residence located at Mispillion Apartment Complex.

According to Det. Dwight Young, Alfred I. Smith III was charged with failure to re-register as a sex offender and second degree indecent exposure.

“Investigation revealed that Smith had been living at a residence in the apartment complex with another tenant. The apartment overlooked the playground at the complex,” said Det. Young.

On July 20, Mr. Smith was seen by adult witnesses, who were near the playground, allegedly standing in the doorway of the residence naked.

“Witnesses observed Smith appear in the doorway naked numerous times as children played at the playground. It was also discovered that Smith is a Tier 2 Registered Sex Offender who had not registered his new address and instead registered as residing in Magnolia,” Det. Young said.

Mr. Smith was arraigned and released on $1,500 unsecured bond.
