A strong dollar affects how much things cost overseas. / Bloomberg News

A bank teller's tingly finger pointed Colorado police and the U.S. Secret Service to a 24-year-old man suspected of swapping cocaine-tainted bills for clean currency.

Police and firefighters responded to a San Luis Valley Federal Bank branch in Monte Vista on Friday after the teller at the drive-up window experienced numbness while handling damp dollars that had a strange odor, The Valley Courier reported. A customer was trying to exchange them for larger denominations.

Monte Vista Police Chief Jim Grayson said some of bills tested positive for cocaine.

The customer, Joseph Gutierrez, of Del Norte, was booked on outstanding misdemeanor warrants while Monte Vista police and Secret Service continue their investigation.
