Court records show Terry Smith is wanted on four different felony cases, for crimes ranging from stealing a car to contraband possession in jail.

He is now in the Tulsa County jail.

Smith's arrest report shows a county deputy spotted him Thursday at a motel near I-244 and Garnett Road and knew Smith was wanted for several felony warrants.  So deputies went up to motel manager and asked to see surveillance video, which showed the room Smith walked into.

The manager then went to the room for a welfare check and confirmed Smith was there.

Deputies waited until a woman left the room and then called in U.S. Marshals.  When the door opened, Terry Smith was arrested and taken to jail.
