West County Man Busted on Meth Charge, Police Say

The following information was supplied by court documents. It does not indicate a conviction where an arrest was made.

A West County man faces a drug charge after the car he was riding in was pulled over by police.

Donald Seifert, 43, of the 1000 block of Waterman Drive just south of Ballwin, was charged Feb. 5 with possessing a methamphetamine precursor drug with intent to make meth.

St. Louis County Police said an officer pulled over a car July 11 because the driver’s license had been revoked. The officer said Seifert, a passenger in the car, appeared to hide something.

The officer said he was given consent to search the car and found 48 pseudoephedrine tablets. According to the report, Seifert admitted he intended to sell the tablets to meth cooks.

A warrant was served and Seifert was arrested Friday on the charge. He was being held in St. Louis County jail Monday. Bail was set at $5,000.
