COLUMBUS, Neb. – A Columbus man accused of dealing marijuauna to a police informant last year will be back in county court next week.

28-year-old Max Hirschbrunner of Columbus is charged with one count of dealing marijuana, a felony, stemming from an incident in October of 2016.

According to documents, police sent an informant to Hirschbrunner’s Columbus home after being told he was selling pot. The documents say the informant bought around three and half grams of marijuana from Hirschbrunner and then met an officer to give him the drugs and the recording device.

The informant also said Hirschbrunner had wax, or THC extract for sale as well, according to records. The recording device backed up that account, according to police.

Police charged Hirschbrunner in March for the crimes, nearly five months after the incident allegedly occurred.

The documents say that Hirschbrunner had an arraignment in mid-September that was pushed to a later date.
