Woman arrested trying to pass $1 million bill at Wal-Mart

COVINGTON -- A woman was caught trying to use a fake $1 million bill with the picture of the Statue of Liberty on it to buy $1,675 worth of merchandise at a Wal-Mart, and was later found with two more of the bills in her purse, police said.

The United States Treasury does not make $1 million bills, but people can buy souvenirs of such a bill at some stores, police said.

"It looks real, but of course there's nothing real about this," Covington Police Chief Stacey Cotton said Tuesday. "People do crazy things all the time. I think it's just another example of some odd things that occur."

A clerk at the store immediately noticed the bill was fake when 35-year-old Alice Regina Pike handed it to her on Friday, Cotton said.

Pike then tried to use two gift cards with only $2.32 of value on them to buy the merchandise, but when that didn't work she again asked if the clerk could cash the $1 million bill, Cotton said. The store then called police.

Pike, of Porterdale, was charged with forgery. There was no listing for her phone number in directory assistance, and she could not be reached for comment Tuesday.

Covington is 32 miles southeast of Atlanta.

LOL. Out of all the fake bills she could've possibly used, she chose the $1 million one. Talk about stupidity! Everyone knows there is no such thing as a million dollar bill.

LOL - everybody knows that the statue of liberty $1 million dollar bill is meant as a joke - no such thing exists. But give her a break as far as arrests go - it's too obvious to be forgery. ;)

Yeah, out of all the places to spend a million dollars she picks Walmart. Needless to say, no store is going to have change for a million dollars.
