[Ed. – The store didn’t have change for anything larger than a $250K bill.]
Two women sought to use a $1 million bill to purchase merchandise at a Dollar General store in Tennessee, police report.
According to investigators, the duo appeared last Monday morning at the convenience store in Maryville, a Knoxville suburb. Their attempt to use the counterfeit bill was thwarted by a sentient Dollar General employee who called the cops.
A sheriff’s deputy dispatched to the Dollar General for a “suspicious incident,” spoke with Amanda McCormick, 39, who possessed the counterfeit bill. McCormick, who lives about four miles from the store, was accompanied by a relative, Linda Johnson, 61.
McCormick (seen at right) told the cop that she received the $1 million bill “in the mail from a church,” but was unable to provide additional information about the purported house of worship’s largesse, as first reported by The Daily Times.
