• Adam D. Ahn, 29, of Colfax was charged Wednesday with aggravated eluding after an officer observed him traveling east at a high rate of speed at 11:01 p.m. Tuesday in the 3000 block of First Avenue East. The officer determined the driver was traveling 55 mph in a 40-mph zone. The officer attempted to stop the vehicle, but the motorist sped up. Speeds reached up 105 mph. The vehicle then passed another vehicle crossing the double yellow line. As Ahn was travelling east toward Kellogg, he attempted to make a turn on Highway 224 but lost control of his vehicle and slid into a ditch.
