Charges for allegedly forging an affidavit have been dismissed against Marystown, NL Mayor Sam Synard.

The 57-year-old mayor was arrested on July 8 and briefly held in custody.

Synard said all he had done was witness the signature of a man who had written an affidavit saying he had paid $400 to store his motorhome in a garage owned by a town councillor.

“I had witnessed someone’s signature saying they had stored a motorhome,” said Synard. “This was the big fraud case that I was charged with.”
