UPI News Service, 04/27/2008 

A truly stinky paycheck forced the evacuation of a bank in New Milford, Conn., and a lockdown of a nearby children's center, police say.

Police said after authorities were contacted by the Bank of America regarding a noxious smell Thursday, the New Milford bank was emptied to allow hazardous materials experts to search the premises, the Waterbury (Conn.) Republican-American reported.

Children at the Beehive Children's Center behind the bank were kept inside as a precaution during the search.

Police said the unusual smell was eventually traced to a paycheck handled by a man with machine cutting oil on his hands.

The check had been deposited at the bank and the smell never dissipated, the Republican-American reported.

The emergency precautions were called off after finding the smelly check and the bank was allowed to reopen nearly an hour later.
