Then, on June 19, BB&T called to demand that the couple return the money.

Robert and Tiffany Williams of Montoursville, Pennsylvania, in May reportedly received an unexpected deposit of more than $120,000, the result of a BB&T bank teller's mistake, according to a police criminal complaint provided to CBS News by the Pennsylvania State Police.

The husband and wife were hit with felony charges of receiving stolen property and theft on Tuesday for blowing through just over $107,000 - on a $14,500 Chevrolet SUV, a race auto, two four-wheelers and $15,000 in payments to friends, among other things - after their area BB&T bank teller accidentally deposited $120,000 on May 31, state police records show.

Instead of reporting the error to the bank, the pair chose to spend it over a period of two weeks, Fox5 reports.

Nate Weaver, a neighbour of the couple, said: "That is kind of shocking, with all the procedures the banks have set up, checking and double-checking and triple-checking there's no way anybody gets away with that stuff".

Robert and Tiffany Williams of Montoursville, Pa., are accused of spending money on an SUV, two four-wheelers, a camper and a auto trailer. They also gave $15,000 to help friends.

"I would check in with the bank first before I (did) anything, I'm not that dumb but some people do stupid things sometimes", said Robert Painton.

The bank credited the correct account with the $120,000 and debited the same amount from the incorrect one, the affidavit said.

Bank officials told the Williams' they were responsible to pay back the money they now owed.

On June 21 the bank called again. "She said she would speak to her husband and attempt to construct a repayment agreement" with the bank, Brown said.

While they initially told the bank they'd work something out, the couple eventually stopped answering and they were later arrested on three felony charges of theft and receiving stolen property. All responses will be confidential.

They appeared in court last week and have been released on bail, the Washington Post reports.
