After enjoying some lunchtime drinks, an Oregon couple left their waitress an unusual tip – not an overly generous sum of money, but an envelope full of methamphetamine.

Ryan Bensen, 40, and Erica Manley, 37, had drinks in the Twisted Fish Steakhouse in Seaside, Ore. last Friday. They paid with a gift card, then left an envelope full of meth as gratuity. The waitress called the police, who arrested Bensen and Manley at the restaurant, KPTV reports.

Police found more meth in Manley’s purse, plus manufacturing items and drugs in the couple’s car and hotel room. Bensen and Manley were arrested for possession and manufacture of meth and are being held at the Clatsop County jail awaiting arraignment.
