A 49-year old man charged with 9 counts of sexual assault by the Brandon Police Service has been picked up in Spain. The Manitoba Integrated Warrant Apprehension Unit says Iain Kenneth Smy was arrested in 2009. He was charged in connection with offences that occured in Brandon between 1984 and 1988. The victims were between 11 and 15 years of age. Smy was released on bail, but failed to make a court date in July 2010. A Canada Wide Warrant was issued. Investigators determined he'd left the country for Europe. This week he was picked up by Spanish National Police at a home in Malago, Spain. He's being held in Madrid while an application is made for his return to Manitoba.
