Here's a tip: Don't reward your Seaside waitress with meth
Daily Astorian [Oregon] ^ | January 7, 2014 | Louie Opatz

SEASIDE — A Seaside waitress received an unusual – and illegal – tip from two patrons early Friday morning.

Ryan L. Bensen, 40, of Beaverton, and Erica A. Manley, 37, of Cascade Locks, were arrested for allegedly thanking their Twisted Fish waitress with an envelope full of methamphetamine.

Seaside Police responded to a report from the waitress that, after the couple paid for their drinks, they included an envelope filled with a crystal-like substance with their payment.

The responding officer identified the substance as methamphetamine, and officers arrested Bensen and Manley. A search of Manley’s purse revealed a large quantity of methamphetamine.

After identifying Bensen and Manley’s motel and vehicle, Seaside searched the premises and uncovered more suspected meth and other items linking them to manufacturing with intent to deliver.

Bensen was arrested for possession of methamphetamine and manufacture of methamphetamine. Manley was arrested for possession of meth, manufacture and delivery of meth.

Both were transported to the Clatsop County Jail awaiting arraignment and formal charges. All seized evidence was forwarded to the state crime lab for analysis.

They should have just tipped with pot, like normal Oregonians.

While I applaud and praise the waitress, I hope she can be put in a witness protection program. She may wind up on a most wanted list of snitches.

**A search of Manley’s purse revealed a large quantity of methamphetamine.**

Strange coincidence that Louis Vuitton burns all their handbags that don't sell at the end of a season...and meth lab explosion news is common.

I saw a movie on Showtime with a similar scenerio except the tax account was given a brick of hash(?) as payment.

"What should I leave for a tip, Erica? What's 15% of $30?"

"I don't know, Ryan. You'll have to do the math."

"Oh. OK."

I know. I'm glad she did what she did. Meth is an atrocious drug.

Not really, though some of the above suggestions are pretty good.
