Justin S. Johnson (pictured) of Bloomfield, Ind., was detained by police in July 2010 after forging and then trying to cash a check for $1,000,000.

A call came in to authorities from the manager at the Eastern Heights Branch of the Bloomfield State Bank after Johnson, 21, presented a check for one million dollars at the teller window, according to police.

The bank teller obtained Johnson's drivers license, photocopied the license and then told Johnson she could not cash the check. The bank manager gave the photocopy to the police, leading them straight to Johnson's residence.

Johnson was charged with forgery, with bail set at $10,000.
