Ongoing legal action related to alleged probation violations by Kremmling resident Robert Mark Smith stalled Tuesday afternoon as defense counsel in the case requested a continuance.

Grand County Judge Nicholas Catanzarite granted the continuance and set another court date for 2 p.m. on Nov. 14.

Smith’s ongoing legal troubles stem from incidents that occurred earlier this year. On Oct. 4 Smith was arrested by local law enforcement officers and charged with probation violation. Smith’s arrest that day was related to multiple alleged violations of his probation on a 15-month deferred judgment in a 2016 assault case.

Law enforcement officials have alleged, among other things, that Smith violated a condition of his probation that prohibits him from owning or having access to firearms or explosive devices. According to statements issued by the Kremmling Police Department in October an investigation into possible probation violations was initiated after it was discovered that a large quantity of ammunition was shipped to Smith through the U.S. Postal Service.
