Oregon Couple Tries to Tip Waitress With Crystal Meth

Couple Busted For Tipping Waitress With Meth

After eating dinner together at a local restaurant in Oregon Thursday, a couple decided to leave their waitress a rather unusual tip.

"A beach trip to the north coast sends one couple to jail after police say they left their waitress meth for her tip!"

Yes, it wasn't a $100 bill or a nice note or more than 20%. It was meth.

Police busted 40-year-old Ryan Benson and 37-year-old Erica Manley at the Twisted Fish Steakhouse Thursday night after they reportedly enjoyed dinner and drinks.

According KGW-TV, the couple paid their bill with a gift card, but apparently wanted to leave a little something extra for their waitress in an envelope marked with a question mark.

When the waitress opened it and found crystal meth inside, she wasn't too appreciative and immediately called 911.

The Twisted Fish's manager told The Oregonian, "She was like 'Whoa -- what the ...?' We're not a little dive bar or hole in the wall. We're a classy place."

When officers arrived at the steakhouse, they confirmed the substance in the envelope was, in fact, meth and placed both Benson and Manley under arrest.

And when officers later searched the couple's car and motel room, they found - you guessed it - even more meth and items used to make the drug as well.

Benson and Manley were booked on possession of methamphetamine and manufacture of methamphetamine. They are currently behind bars awaiting arraignment.

OH ...STFU you whinny lil bittch. These companies run t heir business they why they like it. If you don't like it, pass it by but stop the cry baby posting as if it rally worth a fart. Do you also go to McDonalds and complain why they don't run their business like Wendy's or Burger King. Yes, there are many sports outlets so go find one that won't get you so angry.. PS. I seriously doubt you will to long before something gets you to bittch like a lil girl.

Seriously? They paid with a gift card, not a credit card. How did they know who the couple were? I have been a server for years, you cant trace anyone with a gift card....something is fishy...
