Roughly $300K In Illegal Drugs Confiscated From Columbus Residence

(Columbus) An estimated $300-thousand-dollars’ worth of illegal drugs were confiscated and two people were arrested following a drug bust in Columbus last week. During an investigation by the Columbia County Drug Task Force, a search warrant was obtained to search a home in the city last week Thursday. During the search law enforcement located a large amount of controlled substances including over one pound of ecstasy powder, four pounds of THC wax and oils, two-and-a-half pounds of psilocybin, LSD, and other hallucinogens. Officers also found production materials including pill presses, drug ledgers, cutting compounds, growing materials, money, and a firearm. Sheriff Roger Brandner says 22-year-old Alexander Obermeier and 22-year-old Samantha Libricz were arrested. The Columbus pair are facing several felony charges of Possession with Intent to Deliver as well as Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Maintaining a Drug Dwelling. Brandner says this was a large-scale drug operation and thanked the many law enforcement agencies that worked as a team to get these drugs out of the community. Obermeier and Libricz are awaiting their court appearance at the Columbia County Jail.
