A Moorhead waitress was just returned her $12,000 tip, which police confiscated in suspicion of it being drug money, according to the Star Tribune.
Stacy Knutson was working at Fryn' Pan restaurant when a customer told her to keep a takeout container that held various wads of bills adding up to $12,000, the Pioneer Press said.
Police originally told Knutson she was allowed to keep the generous tip if no one claimed the money for 90 days, according to the Pioneer Press.
Knutson filed a lawsuit that said a customer left her takeout container at her table, and Knutson followed her out into the parking lot where the woman told her to keep the box. When Knutson came into the restaurant and found the cash she notified the police, the Star Tribune said.
"This is a woman with five kids who has been a waitress for 18 years," Knutson's attorney Craig Richie said. "She and her family were praying and asked God's intervention to touch these people's hearts, and that's what happened. It was about God providing for her," according to the Star Tribune.
