SEASIDE, Ore. (AP) — It’s the sort of tip Jesse from “Breaking Bad” might leave.

A waitress at the Twisted Fish restaurant in Seaside, Oregon, called the cops after a couple left her meth for a tip.

The Daily Astorian newspaper reports the responding officer busted 40-year-old Ryan Bensen and 37-year-old Erica Manley.

Police say they found more meth in Manley’s purse and in the couple’s motel room and vehicle.
