And Police Keep It!
via CBS Minnesota: A waitress in Minnesota is suing after $12,000 was left at her restaurant table — she says it was a tip but police say, it’s drug money.
The lawsuit was filed in Clay County District Court and alleges that the waitress found a box, left at her table at the Fryn’ Pan restaurant in Moorhead. She said she followed the customer to her car to return the box but the woman told her to keep it.
The waitress said she found bundled rolls of cash inside the box, totaling $12,000.
She said even though she has five children and could use the money, she decided to call police..
Officers told the woman to wait 90 days in case someone claimed the money. Apparently after three months, police told the woman the cash was being held as drug money.
