Bloomfield, Indiana (SafeCITY) - Justin Johnson, a 21-year-old Bloomfield man, was arrested after he allegedly attempted to cash a check for $1 million dollars.

According to the Greene County Sheriff's Department, Johnson pulled up to the drive-through window of a local bank and handed over a check to be cashed for 1 million dollars.

Investigators say the bank employee could tell it was a forgery so she requested Johnson's driver's license as standard operation for cashing a check. The teller made a copy of Johnson's license, returned it to him, and then refused to cash the check.

The woman then called investigators who paid a little visit to Johnson at his home.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Johnson received a blank check from a man for whom he had worked. Johnson then allegedly filled the check out for $1 million dollars and signed the man's name.

He was booked into the Greene County Jail and charged with a class-c felony forgery. Bond has been set at $10,000.
