Police: Oregon couple tipped waitress with meth

SEASIDE, OR (KPTV) -

Two customers who left an envelope full of methamphetamine as a tip for a waitress at a Seaside restaurant Friday are now facing a handful of drug-related charges, according to the Seaside Police Department.

Ryan Benson, of Beaverton, and Erica Manley, of Cascade Locks, were having some lunchtime drinks at the Twisted Fish Steakhouse in the Oregon coast town on Friday morning.

When it came time to pay, they gave the waitress meth in place of a tip, police said.

Seaside police officers responded to the restaurant and the waitress identified the suspects, who were arrested at the scene.

Officers said they searched Manley's purse and found a large amount of meth inside. Police also served search warrants on the couple's hotel room and car, and they found more meth, plus items linking them to the manufacturing and dealing of the drug.

All of the evidence was passed on to the state crime lab for analysis.

Benson was arrested on charges of possession of meth and manufacturing of meth. Manley was arrested on the same charges, plus delivery of meth. They were both booked into the Clatsop County Jail.
