Agents of the Minnesota River Valley Drug Task Force investigated the shop and Cmdr. Jeff Wersal reported that Loehlein gave each of the shop's six employees half-gram of meth in Seifert's presence.

Syringes and a digital scale with traces of meth were found at the Mankato business as the task force search the building on Thursday.

Wersel said the task force had been observing the shop for more than sixth months but did not have enough evidence to arrest Loehlein.
