Cape police say customer won't give back extra money from bank error
Editor's note: This story has been edited to clarify that police do not suspect the bank teller intentionally gave the customer the extra money.
Cape Girardeau police officers are still investigating a theft that occurred Friday at the Bank of Missouri, where a customer reportedly refused to return an excess amount of cash mistakenly given to him by a bank teller.
The man entered Bank of Missouri to access a safety deposit box to exchange a large stack of mixed bills for a stack of $20 bills.
According to Adam Glueck, a spokesman with the Cape Girardeau Police Department, a bank employee gave him the wrong amount, which was substantially more than he was owed. The error, he said, was discovered after the customer left when the bank vault and drawer were balanced. Glueck said there was no evidence suggesting that the extra money was intentionally delivered to the customer.
The bank customer was contacted by the bank and police officers.
"He refused to come back and turn the excess amount over. He claimed he was given the correct amount," Glueck said. "Officers have completed a state warrant application for the charge of stealing over $500, but as of now no charges have been filed."
The case is still under investigation.
