Police: Man busted after trying to deposit million-dollar bill at bank

Sunday, December 2, 2007

AIKEN, S.C. -- A bank teller had a million reasons to deny this transaction.

Police say a man tried to open an account with a $1 million bill, which does not exist. The teller refused and called police while the man started to curse at bank workers, said Aiken County Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Michael Frank.

Alexander D. Smith, 31, of Augusta, Ga., was charged with disorderly conduct and two counts of forgery, Frank said.

Smith was being held at the Aiken County jail Wednesday, and bail was set at $257.
