A bank mistakenly put $120,000 into a couple’s account. They spent it, police say. Robert and Tiffany Williams of Montoursville spent the money on an SUV, a camper, two four wheelers and a car trailer, among other things, according to an affidavit.
Both Tiffany and Robert Williams told investigators they knew the money didn’t belong to them. Some of the money also went to pay bills and for car repairs, and the couple gave $15,000 to “friends in need of money,” Tiffany Williams told investigators, according to the affidavit.
The bank error occurred when a Georgia customer made the 120K deposit, and the Bank teller entered a wrong account number. After the bank conducted an investigation, it was found that the $120,000 went into Tiffany and Robert Williams’ account.
The couple is currently out on $25,000 bail. Not sure if they paid that bail with the stolen money (just kidding).
