$1M bill deposit attempt leads to Iowa man’s drug arrest
SIOUX CITY | Authorities say a man who tried to deposit what he presented as a $1 million bill has been charged with drug possession in Iowa.
A criminal complaint says Sioux City Police officers were called to a Northwest Bank branch Thursday to talk to a man who tried to deposit the bill into his account.
The officers asked Dennis Strickland, 33, whether he had any more of the bills and that a baggie fell out when he emptied a pocket.
The complaint says the baggie contained methamphetamine.
The Treasury Department says it has never produced a $1 million bill.
Iowa court records say Mr. Strickland is scheduled to be back in court Monday.
