Mankato body shop owner accused of a most unusual payroll currency
A Mankato auto body shop allegedly has been paying its employees with a most unconventional currency: Methamphetamine.
Not surprisingly, that's against the law, and now the shop's owner is in jail Thursday awaiting charges.
Agents of the Minnesota River Valley Drug Task Force received a tip Wednesday from one of the employees at Clear Choice that the 40-year-old owner and his 39-year-old girlfriend were paying the employees with meth, said Task Force Cmdr. Jeff Wersal.
