A deputy from the Hardin  County Sheriff’s Office attempted to make a traffic stop in Ada after viewing a routine traffic violation.   The suspect vehicle failed to stop and continued to 417 W.

Another way to give in memory of Jaeger

The Ada Police Department has set up a GoFundMe for gifts in Jaeger's memory to go toward the purchase of a new K9; however, some people would rather make a donation without going on line. 

The police department says they will be glad to accept donations in the office between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Go Fund Me enables persons to make online donations to projects. The following is from the Go Fund Me site. It explains the Ada police department's request for funding.

As of Friday, $480 had be raised toward a goal of $8,000.
