Smelly check closes bank for an hour

It wasn't dirty money causing a stink at a Connecticut bank -- but a smelly check.

A hazmat team was sent to a Bank of America branch in New Milford to check on reports of a bad odor.

It wasn't a chemical spill.

Officials say a man had machine oil on his hands that rubbed off on his paycheck, which he handed to drive-up teller.

Authorities allowed bank workers back into the building and branch was open for business again in about an hour.
