Police say a suspect is in custody in the rape of a 12-year-old Glenpool girl last year. He is the same man who police say tried to kidnap two young girls from their lemonade stand in March of this year.

Court records show police got a DNA hit from both the rape of the Glenpool girl and the attempted kidnapping of the two girls, to 50-year-old Kevin Leroy Smith from Sapulpa.

Glenpool and Tulsa Police aren't saying much about the case, but U.S. Marshals arrested Smith in July on nine counts of distributing child pornography. His DNA was taken when he was arrested.

Once it was put into the database, it matched these two unsolved crimes. 

Police say Smith kidnapped and raped a 12-year-old girl in Glenpool in January of 2013. A man forced a 12-year-old girl into his car, took her to a different location, raped her then dropped her back off in her neighborhood.

That case went unsolved and then, this past March, they say Smith pulled up to a couple of girls selling Kool-Aid in their driveway.

The girls, 11 and 13, say he asked them if they wanted to make money, said he would take them to his studio and take their pictures, but the girls got scared and backed away. They saved the cup he drank from and gave it to police.

Police say DNA on that cup matched the rape case, so police knew the same man did both. They didn't know who that man was until Smith was arrested in July for the pornography charges, and his DNA just came back August 27th as a match for both those cases.

Smith had been out on bond for the child pornography charges, but late last week, prosecutors asked the judge to revoke Smith's bond and put him in jail because they called him a danger to the community.

The judge agreed and Smith is now in jail until his next court date.

I'm told when detectives served a search warrant on Smith's home Friday night, they found the white SUV they say he used to kidnap and rape the 12-year-old girl.

Smith has not been charged in the Glenpool rape case, but police expect that to happen in a matter of days.

He will not be charged for the incident at the lemonade stand.

Smith's trial for the child pornography charges is set for September 15th in federal court.

I contacted his public defender, but he said he couldn't comment at this time.
