Cops: Workers Got Their Bonuses In Meth At Minnesota Auto Body Shop

Instead of receiving cash, employees at a Minnesota auto body shop got their bonuses in methamphetamine, according to investigators who yesterday raided the business.

Minnesota River Valley Drug Task Force officials say that a worker at Clear Choice Auto Body Repair in Mankato disclosed the meth bonuses as investigators executed a search warrant at the business.

The employee told drug agents that during a meeting this week, Clear Choice workers were each given “approximately one half gram of methamphetamine as a bonus.”

The meeting was run by Clear Choice owner Jesse Michael Seifert, 40. Seifert’s girlfriend, Nancy Jean Loehlein, 39, allegedly distributed the meth bonuses.

During the search, investigators reported, they located “used syringes which field tested positive for the presence of methamphetamine” and a digital scale containing methamphetamine residue.

Prior to the raid, Seifert (seen above) was arrested on an unrelated driving charge and booked into the Blue Earth County Jail.

The narcotics probe is “still under investigation, and more charges are pending,” according to police.

In a Facebook post last July, Seifert offered to sell Clear Choice for $350,000. In other recent posts, Seifert wrote about serving 10 months in jail for drunk driving, wearing an ankle monitor, and serving a probation term.
