The state has dumped about $140,000 worth of wine that had belonged to a man accused of vandalizing a winery near North Platte.
It had belonged to a former Feather River Vineyards employee, David Jurena.
Jurena has been charged with burglary and criminal mischief and faces trial next month.
He is accused of draining more than 300 gallons of wine from winery tanks last October.
Authorities say he ruined the wine by putting in too much sulfur dioxide, then dumped it to avoid being caught.
