Amy Mae Seefeldt, 27, is charged with felony first-degree drug sale of 10 grams or more of methamphetamine and felony first-degree possession of 25 grams or more of methamphetamine, which both carry a maximum sentence of no less than four years and no more than 40 years’ jail time and a $1 million fine.

Prairie Island tribal police received information that Seefeldt, who had a felony warrant out for her arrest, was at Treasure Island Casino, according to the complaint.

Officers approached a woman, who matched the Driver and Vehicle Services photo for Seefeldt, on the floor of the casino and when asked if she was Amy Seefeldt she told officers she was Amy’s sister, Ashley, and didn’t have any identification card to verify her name, the complaint states.

Seefeldt was informed she was under arrest and upon a search of her purse officers found three bags of a crystal-like substance which later tested positive for methamphetamine, authorities said, along with a black spoon with white residue.

According to the complaint, officers also found a Minnesota picture ID for Amy Seefeldt, along with her name on them in the purse, but she continued to insist she was Ashley Seefeldt.

Upon intake to the Goodhue County Adult Detention Center, the intake officer found another bag in Seefeldt’s purse which tested positive for meth and weighed just less than one gram, the report states. The total weight of methamphetamine found in Seefeldt’s purse weighed 47.05 grams, according to the complaint.

The complaint does not list the weights of the first three bags of methamphetamine.

In 2012, Seefeldt was convicted of felony fifth-degree drug possession — not small amount of marijuana in Scott County.

Seefeldt was also charged with giving a peace officer a false name, a gross misdemeanor which has a maximum sentence of one year in prison and a $3,000 fine, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a petty misdemeanor with up to a $300 fine.

Seefeldt is scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
