More From the Dumb Crooks File

If you are attempting to pass a bad check, might as well make it a big one.

FORT WORTH -- An aspiring record label owner is singing the blues after he was arrested last week for allegedly trying to pass a $360 billion check at a Fort Worth bank.

Employees at the Chase Bank at 8601 S. Hulen St. grew suspicious after seeing all those zeroes (10 to be exact) and called the check's owner. The woman said the suspect, Charles Ray Fuller, 21, of Crowley, is her daughter’s boyfriend and that he did not have permission to take the check or cash it.
That is just too funny. How could he possibly think the bank would cash a check that large?

Fuller was arrested on suspicion of fraud, along with unlawfully carrying a weapon and possession of marijuana after officers found less than 2 ounces of the drug and a .25-caliber handgun and magazine in his pockets.
I guess the little pistol was for self protection. He was expecting to walk out of the bank with $350,000,000,000. I wonder if he brought a large enough sack?
