Patrons accused of tipping US waitress with meth

SEASIDE, Oregon (AP) -- A waitress at a U.S. restaurant says she received an unusual tip -- an envelope full of methamphetamine.

The Daily Astorian newspaper reports the Oregon waitress contacted police Friday after a couple included the envelope while paying for their drinks.

The responding officer identified the substance and arrested 40-year-old Ryan Bensen and 37-year-old Erica Manley.

Police said they found more of the drug when searching Manley's purse and the couple's motel and vehicle.

The newspaper reports the two were taken to the Clatsop County Jail. Bensen was charged with meth possession and manufacture of meth. Manley faces the same charges as well as delivery of meth.
