Yea, its not like she found the money in some back alley ( even then it should be hers after 90 days). But she got this as a tip. Do whats right, unfairly tax her and let her keep the scraps.
Even if she did find it in a back alley... She reported it and no one claimed it. Whether it's a pile of cash, or $200 dollar ring. If it's okay to find and report one thing, how is not okay for something else?

It doesn't pay to be an honest citizen
If I find any money, no matter what the amount, I am keeping it all and not reporting it to anybody, at all.

You all realize if they have a on going investigation against someone who they believe sells drugs there not going to tell the press about it until they make an arrest.
Honestly who leaves a tip in rolled up bills in a box, maybe it wasnt left for the waitress.
Because if it's drug money the department has to spend it on police equipment.
My son in-law is a police chief, he has a hard time finding stuff to spend the seizure money on. The laws don't allow for it to be used on anything else. His department is very well equiped, AR's, MP5's, One squad (a Suburban) even has a roof mounted FLIR unit. All the cars have laptops and sattelite internet, full cameras and sound to record all stops. He won't admit it but I know a few of the squads have remore starters for wintertime.
