Stacy Knutson, a struggling Minnesota waitress and mother of five, says she was searching for a "miracle" to help her family with financial problems.

But that "miracle" quickly came and went after police seized a $12,000 tip that was left at her table. Knutson filed a lawsuit in Clay County District Court stating that the money is rightfully hers. Police argue it is drug money.

Yeah, why would she tell anyone? Moron.

Even if it is drug money, who cares. Let her have it. Finders keepers. All it's going to do is sit in an evidence locker for a few years and then get taken away by the crooked government.

that's what people get for bragging. Plausible deniability. Tell nobody.



It's all about covering one's butt.. best way is to keep your mouth shut. I can't believe they let her keep the money.

I know this is an old story, but I believe we can all be happy that she got to keep the money and help her family's financial situation. Just because she made an unwise mistake in publicizing it does not mean we should be cruel and wish her ill will. Most servers work really hard and it is nice to hear a story about something good happening to a working class person. Heck, this is still next to nothing compared to those silly "golden parachutes" CEO's get when they leave firms!
