Bank tellers don't usually expect to find illegal drugs in a bank deposit, but according to one news story, that's exactly what they found. According to the news, a man allegedly included a gram of meth with his bank deposit at a drive-up window. The bank teller found cash, checks and a folded piece of paper which contained a blue plastic bag filled with a crystal-like white substance in the man's deposit. She then contacted her manager and police later arrived to investigate, eventually determining the substance was methamphetamine. In Denver, Morgan County and across Colorado, the man could be arrested for Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance, a felony in Colorado.
