Man wants $140, broken Maine ATM spits out $37,000April 4, 2014 @ 3:40 pm
SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- A malfunctioning ATM at a bank in Maine has dispensed $37,000 in cash to a man who requested $140.
South Portland police say they responded to the TD Bank branch Thursday morning 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. Officers found the man stuffing cash into a shopping bag.
The money was returned to the bank. Bank officials say they don't want to press charges. But police continue to investigate. The man hasn't been charged.
A bank official describes the problem as a "code error" and says no customer accounts were affected.
