Fairview Mayor John Blade, submitted his resignation yesterday nearly a month after he was accused of swiping items from the Target store. The store loss prevention officer claimed that Blade used the self-checkout line on September 19, but didn’t pay for all of the products and walked out with $281 worth of stolen merchandise.
The goods included more than 40 household items, including three tweezers and skin products, authorities said. Fairview city officials said his resignation was “effective immediately,” but didn’t indicate whether the decision was linked to his theft case.
