BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A woman called Boynton Beach police when she found $1,800 in cash sticking out of a deposit slot at a Chase bank ATM.
Boynton Beach police say 46-year-old Adriana Allen saw the stack of $100 bills when she drove up to the ATM on Sunday afternoon. She told police she tried to push the cash into the deposit slot, but the ATM wouldn't accept it. So she took the cash and called police.
The responding officer counted and took possession of the cash.
Allen says there were no vehicles ahead of her when she pulled up to the ATM.
Police are holding the cash until bank officials locate the account holder.
On police department's Facebook page, officers thanked Allen for "her honesty and compassion, and for doing the right thing."
