$1M bill de­posit at­tempt leads to Iowa man’s drug ar­rest

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

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.
