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 says (https://bit.ly/1ncPUod ) 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 to a person who turned out to be a police informant on Sunday. The deal was to be done at a convenience store parking lot in Schuyler.

Schuyler Police Chief Leonard Hiltner says in the affidavit that officers found the little boy in a car seat in Blattner’s van. Hiltner says the boy was “absolutely filthy.”

Jail records say Blattner remained in custody on Thursday. Court records don’t list the name of his attorney.
