DailyMail An Iowa man was arrested after police allegedly found meth on him when he attempted to deposit a million-dollar bill. Dennis Strickland’s get rich quick scheme was busted after he allegedly tried to deposit an unusually large bill at a bank in Sioux City, Iowa, on Thursday. The 33-year-old was arrested after police were called to the scene over the suspicious transaction. When officers asked if he had any more of the bills in his pocket, Strickland pulled out a baggie of meth instead, police said. Strickland allegedly attempted to become a millionaire at Northwest Bank on West 7th Street in Sioux City. A bank teller alerted police over the transaction because Strickland never had more than $500 in his account at a time, reported Kelo Land. The deposit was also suspicious because the United States Treasury has never printed such a bill. When police arrived at the scene, they said Strickland appeared to be anxious and kept fidgeting with something in his pocket. Officials claimed they heard paper rustling and asked Strickland if he had any more million-dollar bills. Strickland then began to empty his pockets and out came a small packet of methamphetamine, according to police. He was then arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance but wasn’t charged over the million-dollar bill dispute. Strickland is currently being held at Woodbury County Jail on a $1,000 bond. The highest denomination bill currently in circulation is the $100 bill. The highest note ever produced was the $100,000 bill from December 1934 to January 1935.
Dennis Strickland decided to “go big or go home” while he tried to deposit a counterfeit bill at an Iowa bank, instead of depositing a phony small bill, he went right for the jackpot and attempted to deposit a one-million dollar bill, which does not exist. In fact, a million dollar bill has never existed, the highest denomination of bill ever issued was a $100,000 bill which existed for just one year in the 1930’s. The largest bill currently in circulation is the $100, or the Benjamin, so if you decide to deposit a counterfeit bill you might want to do a little research first. What is not included in the article, which I feel is very important information, is who was the face on the million dollar bill that Dennis Strickland attempted to deposit. Was it President Trump? Did he buy the fake $1 million dollar bill at a novelty store for a dollar, then try to deposit it, figuring it was worth a shot? Dennis Strickland was also arrested for possession of meth, which is not surprising, because you have to be on drugs to think you are going to get away with depositing a fake one million dollar bill. If you are going to attempt to deposit a fake one million dollar bill, take the meth out of your pocket first, so you do not get arrested for drug possessions well. In fact, Dennis Strickland was not arrested for the attempt at depositing the fake million dollar bill, just the meth. You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take, I guess.
