A 33-year-old Columbus, Nebraska man has been arrested, accused of taking his 18-month-old son along for a drug deal in Colfax County.
Brian Blattner is charged with attempted possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and negligent child abuse without serious injury.
Last Sunday, Blattner allegedly agreed to sell methamphetamine 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 an affidavit that officers found the boy in a car seat in Blattner's van. Chief Hiltner said the toddler was "absolutely filthy."
