A man who tried to use marijuana as currency to pay for food at Domino’s Pizza ended up behind bars, according to police in Nebraska.

Omaha police said that they have arrested the 24-year-old man of Lincoln, who was not identified, for offering drugs to a Domino’s Pizza employee after placing an order for pizza and chicken.

The suspect has been charged with one count of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

He was booked into jail and his bail has been set at $5,000.

According to the police investigation, the incident unfolded on Monday night.

The suspect walked into the Domino’s Pizza located at 2728 St. Mary’s Avenue.

He placed an order for pizza and chicken.

When the employee gave him his food, the suspect pulled out a $50 that was ripped.

When the employee told him that the $50 could not be accepted, the man took the cash back and handed over a $20 bill.

The suspect then ordered a drink.

When the employee asked for payment, the suspect pulled out a marijuana joint and handed it to the worker.

The worker told a manager and the police were called.

Police officers who arrived at the scene searched the suspect’s backpack, where they found individually wrapped marijuana joints, a scale, and $87 in cash, which was more than enough to pay for many drinks.
