BC)--Former Fairview Police Chief Daniel Harry Smith has waived extradition from Ohio to face charges in Major County. According to Enid News and Eagle, a waiver of extradition was filed in Van Wert (Ohio) Municipal Court on Jan. 10. Smith was arrested Jan. 9 in Van Wert on a felony warrant out of Major County District Court. Online court records show Smith has been charged in Major County with two felony counts of conspiracy in connection with an investigation that led to charges last year against former Fairview City Council member William Shane Bode. According to an affidavit filed in Smith’s case in Major County District Court, the charges stem from the illegal sale of two transformers Bode obtained through embezzlement from the city of Fairview.
