A couple from Pennsylvania is accused of theft after being on one illegal shopping because a bank clerk accidentally deposited more than $ 100,000 into his account.
Robert Williams, 36, and Tiffany Williams, 35, allegedly received $ 120,000 in their bank account after a BB&T counter accidentally added the money on May 31.
Instead of informing the bank, the Montoursville couple blew through the money in two and a half weeks, according to WPEN.
A married couple from Pennsylvania were arrested for criminal theft and receiving stolen property after spending nearly $ 120,000 after a bank clerk accidentally put it in their account

After realizing their mistake, BB&T contacted Tiffany (right) and explained that the couple was expected to reimburse all redstand costs
Between June 3 and June 19, the couple bought an SUV, a camper, a car trailer and two quadricycles.
They reportedly spent the money on bills, car repairs, cash purchases, and gave $ 15.00 to a friend in need.
For the large down payment, the Williamsport Sun-Gazette reports that the Williams only had $ 1,121 in their bank account.
BB&T made the mistake around June 20 and transferred the money to the right recipient, Dimension Covington Investment LLC.
By then, the Williams had collected $ 107,416 in a red tie, according to Williamsport Sun-Gazette.
The bank contacted Tiffany and explained that she and her husband were expected to repay all funds.
Robert Williams placed a four-wheeler on his Facebook page in July, but it is unclear whether this was bought with the $ 120,000

The bank called the pair again on June 21, but Tiffany told them that they had spent a vast majority of the money.
& # 39; She no longer had the money because she had already paid the bills. She told the bank that her husband had spent much of the money and had purchased a four-wheeler, & # 39; Williamsport Sun-Gazette reported.
& # 39; She said she would talk to her husband and try to sign a repayment agreement. & # 39;
The couple was approached on Tuesday with indictment for theft, it received stolen property and a bail of $ 25,000

Then the bank tried to contact the couple several times, but they could not reach them.
After they were taken into police custody, the couple told the authorities that they knew the money was not theirs.
The Williamsport Sun-Gazette reports that Robert said they knew that & # 39; the lost money didn't belong to them, but they spent it anyway & # 39 ;.
Neighbors of the Williams were surprised by the allegations.
& # 39; That's quite shocking & # 39 ;, neighbor Nate Weaver told WNEP. & # 39; With all the procedures that banks have set up, double checking and triple checking, nobody gets away with that stuff. & # 39;
At the request of WNEP, Robert's father was unable to provide information about his son's case or the current situation.
The Williams were approached on Tuesday, confronted with theft of crimes and received stolen property.
They were released on a bail of $ 25,000.
