A 33-year-old Sioux City man has been arrested on drug charges after authorities say he tried to deposit fake money at a local bank.
According to court documents, police officers were dispatched to Northwest Bank on West 7th Street in Sioux City around 4:40 Thursday afternoon after bank employees reported that Dennis Strickland was attempting to deposit a $1,000,000 bill into his bank account.
While officers were talking to Strickland they heard paper rustling in his pocket and asked him if he had more bills. Police say that Strickland then pulled everything out of his pockets and a small baggie of methamphetamine came out with it.
Strickland has been charged with Possession of a Controlled substance. He’s currently being held in the Woodbury County Jail on a $1,000 bond. His next court date is scheduled for August 14 at 9:00 a.m.
“Get Rich Quick” schemes are carried out on a daily basis, that’s no secret. But, I don’t think I have ever heard of someone trying to cash a fake million dollar bill. That HAS to be the worst possible idea anyone can come up with. Just look at this guy:
He looks like a methed up version of Kendrick Lamar in this picture… Just saying…
Whats up tut, i’m Intern Turtle.
EGPTY!! After 10 seconds of scrolling through his Facebook, one thing is for sure, Dennis Strickland is a big Egypt guy, BIG Egypt guy for sure.
Apparently you have a million dollar bill bro! what do you mean “where my money at” ???
Who would be able to guess that this guy was a meth junkie? All you need to do is just scroll through his Facebook if you really want to dive into the mind of one.
If you’re a meth guy, you have to cover it up, make sure you’re lookin’ fly with those Jordan’s. Nobody will be able to tell. Imagine if you’re a bank teller, just trying to do your job – and you get that customer? You know you will have one hell of a story after work to go home and tell your mom, wife, etc.
As I was writing this blog, I remembered that not too long ago (July 21st), I wrote about another bank robbery gone wrong. Remember the High IQ Sludge Puppy who wrote his demands on a personal check??
A bank employee noticed it was written on a Wells Fargo starter check. The employee ran the account number through the bank’s database and determined it was issued to Rashad Harris, documents said.
The employee then went on Facebook, found Harris’ account and determined he was the man who had robbed the place and contacted police, documents said.
It got me thinking, which robbery fuck up was worse? Attempting to cash a fake million dollar check with meth in your pocket? or writing your demands on your own personal check, and leaving the check behind? It’s a close one, one thing is for sure, if there was an Olympic event for robbing banks, Dennis Strickland and Rashad Harris would be competing for the gold.
Dennis Strickland’s attempt was probably worse. If you want to get away with depositing fake money, It’s probably logical to use smaller bills. Walking right in with a fake million dollar bill, is a recipe for disaster. Especially when you look like Strickland, and you have meth in your pocket. It’s a wild move, but if it works, Strickland would be swimming in all of the meth he could ever imagine. His house would be like the meth version of the board game “Candyland.”
At least Harris had himself a little run of successful bank robberies, he has the winning pedigree. Harris had the game plan to flee after the demands were met, and he dropped the check. Strickland had zero self awareness here, if you’re going to attempt to deposit fake money, it’s probably smart to leave your meth at home.
I would say Strickland wins worst bank robbery attempt out of these two model citizens. Turtle riders, vote your choice on the poll below to see who takes home the gold.
