Police in Maine are investigating after a malfunctioning ATM at a bank spit out $37,000 in cash to man who requested $140.
South Portland police tell WGME-TV that they responded to the TD Bank branch at about 5:30 a.m. Thursday after getting a call from a woman who said a man was spending an unusual amount of time at the ATM she was waiting to use. Responding officers found the man stuffing cash into a shopping bag.
The money was returned to the bank, and bank officials said they don’t want to press charges. But police continue to investigate.
A bank official described the problem as a “code error” and said no customer accounts were affected.
Sounds like we might need to pick up and move to Maine!
