  • Police seized methamphetamine, tools and electronics valued over $10,000 from a Nebraska City apartment Wednesday.
    The apartment occupant, 52-year-old Brett Huss, was detained by police near the apartment before the search was conducted.
    Police Cpt. Lonnie Neeman said methamphetamine with a street value of $8,000 was found inside of the residence, along with marijuana and paraphernalia.
    A variety of tools, a safe, winch, anvils, televisions, car radio, tool boxes and an Xbox 360 were also seized.
    "We don't know how much of it is stolen, but we know some of it is," Neeman said.
    He said Huss has previously upgraded a house and some of the tools may be his.
    The Xbox 360 with Star Wars package is brand new and has never been out of the box.
    Neeman said the game matches the serial number of a game that was reported stolen.
    Police are contacting victims of dozens of shed burglaries and car thefts over the last eight months in an attempt to identify stolen property.
    Cpt. Neeman said he does not suspect that Huss, who lived alone in the apartment, for theft by taking.
    "These things may have been traded for drugs," he said.
    An investigation by police and the Nebraska State Patrol resulted in the search warrant.
    Neeman said it doesn't take a large quantity of methamphetamine for a street value of $8,000. The meth taken fits into a single evidence bag.
