AIKEN, S.C Nov. 28, 2007– A bank teller had a million reasons to deny this transaction.
Police say a man offered a $1 million bill and tried to open an account. The employee 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, said Frank.
The second forgery charge came after investigators learned Smith bought several cartons of cigarettes from a nearby grocery store with a check that had been stolen in a burglary earlier in the day. Other charges could be pending .Smith has a bail hearing scheduled Wednesday, but Deputy Angela Shunn of the Aiken County Detention Center did not know if he had an attorney.
