A waitress in Minnesota is suing over $12,000 left at her restaurant table that she believes is a tip, but police say is drug money.
The lawsuit filed in Clay County District Court says the waitress discovered a box left at her table at the Fryn' Pan restaurant in Moorhead and followed the customer to her car to return the box.
The woman told the waitress to keep the box, which she later discovered contained bundled rolls of cash.
The waitress says that even though she has five children and really needed the money, she decided to call police and turn in the money.
Officers told the woman to wait 90 days in case someone claimed the money.
Three months had passed, but police told the waitress the cash was being held as drug money
