SCHUYLER, Neb. (AP) — A 33-year-old Columbus man is accused of taking his 18-month-old son along for a drug deal in Colfax County.
The Columbus Telegram reported that Brian Blattner is charged with attempted possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and negligent child abuse without serious injury.
An arrest affidavit says Blattner had agreed to sell methamphetamine Sunday to a person who turned out to be a police informant. The deal was to be done at a convenience store parking lot in Schuyler.
Schuyler Police Chief Leonard Hiltner said in the affidavit that officers found the little boy in a car seat in Blattner’s van. Hiltner said the boy was “absolutely filthy.”
Jail records say Blattner remained in custody Thursday.
