Copper theft, meth bust, keeping Ada police bus

By Amy Eddings

There were no meetings and no reports forthcoming from Ada village council committee heads during the village council meeting Tuesday night.  But Police Chief Mike Harnischfeger had plenty to say when it came time for him to give his monthly public safety report.

He said someone tried to steal copper wire from the construction site of the new wastewater treatment center at East Lincoln Avenue near Grass Creek, cutting an opening in the wire fencing around the plant.  A patrol officer interrupted the theft and discovered the wire.
