An Iowa man is behind bars on a drug charge after police say he attempted to deposit a fake $1 million bill.
According to the Sioux City Journal, Dennis Strickland, 33, of Sioux City, brought the bill to Northwest Bank, where a teller immediately realized that the money was fake, authorities said.
Sioux City police were called to the scene.
As officers had Strickland empty his pockets, a bag of methamphetamine was discovered, police said.
While no charges have been filed for the fraudulent currency, Strickland has since been charged with possession of a controlled substance, the Journal reported.
He is being held on a $1,000 bond.
