(KGTV) - Did a Pennsylvania couple really spend $120,000 the bank mistakenly put in their account?

Yes!

Police in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania say a teller at BB&T accidentally deposited $120,000 into Robert and Tiffany Williams' account.

But instead of contacting the bank, the couple allegedly spent most of the money over a two-week period on items including an SUV, a camper, bills, and car repairs. They even gave $15,000 to friends.

The Williams now owe the bank the original $120,000 plus $107,000 in overdraft fees.

They've been out of contact with the bank since June and now face felony theft charges.
