SIOUX CITY — A 33-year-old Sioux City man is alleged to have tried to deposit a $1 million bill at a local bank.
According to multiple media reports, on Thursday Dennis Strickland tried to deposit the fraudulent currency at Northwest Bank, 818 W. Seventh St.
Spotting the fake bill, a teller notified the Sioux City Police Department.
Sergeant Judy Kellen confirmed Strickland did try and deposit a piece of paper at the bank but would not verify any other details about that portion of the incident since no charges were filed in relation to it.
When officers arrived at the bank Thursday and questioned Strickland, he was asked to empty his pockets and was found to be in possession of methamphetamine.
He was charged with possession of a controlled substance, first offense.
Strickland is being held on $1,000 bond in the Woodbury County Jail and has a court appearance scheduled for Aug. 14.
