GREENSBURG, Ind. (AP) — A man who went to the sheriff’s department to bond out his brother-in-law also ended up in jail when police realized the money he handed them reeked of marijuana.

Timothy Richards, 45, of Columbus, went to the Decatur County Sheriff’s Department and when he handed dispatcher Julie Meyers $400, she counted it and then noticed something unusual. “When I walked back toward the jail I noticed the money was damp and smelled funny,” Meyers said. A jailer who sniffed the money told her it smelled like marijuana, she said.
