Charges are expected to be dropped against an Iowa man who allegedly deposited his marijuana stash with the day's takings from a pizzeria he managed.

Adrian Hilton of Coralville was scheduled to go on trial on Monday, the Iowa City Press Citizen reported. But David Tiffany, an assistant Johnson County district attorney, said there is no evidence because the bank teller returned the marijuana.

"The bank teller gave the marijuana back to him so we didn't have any evidence," Tiffany said. "She was smart enough to call police, but then she gave it back to him."

Employees at American Bank and Trust found a baggie half-full of what appeared to be marijuana in a Pizza Pit deposit bag Sept. 17. Hilton did sign a letter for Pizza Pit admitting the marijuana was his, Tiffany said.
