SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine >> A malfunctioning ATM at a bank in Maine has dispensed $37,000 in cash to 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.

You can't tell from this short article if he was trying to run away with the money or stuffing it into the bag to return it. But, yep, you can tell the lady was jealous.
