Meth is a hell of a drug, in fact, it might even be the million dollar dream. For one Sioux City man in Iowa, that million dollar dream is going to have to remain a fantasy.

33 Year Old Dennis Strickland tried to make his dreams come true however, when he walked into Northwest Bank on West 7th Street in Sioux City, and tried to deposit a $1,000,000.00 bill.
Police say that bank tellers then called them to report that something wasn't quite right about the would-be millionaire, since his bank account has never had more than $500 in it at a time.
After officers arrived to the scene they say the man was acting anxious, and kept fidgeting with something in his pocket that sounded like paper so they asked if he had more million dollar bills on him.
Law enforcement says that once they asked him, he then began to empty his pockets of all his belongings, and a small baggy of methamphetamine fell out.
Police then arrested Strickland and charged him with Possession of a Controlled substance. They didn't however charge him for the million dollar bill.
He's currently being held in the Woodbury County Jail on a $1,000 bond. His next court date is scheduled for August 14th at 9:00 AM, but there's no word yet if the courts will accept his million dollar bill as per bond.
