The money was supposed to be deposited to the account of Dimension Covington Investment LLC, the Sun-Gazette reported.
The bank, realizing its mistake, transferred the $120,000 to the proper account, WNEP reported.Bank officials contacted Tiffany Williams, telling her the withdrawals resulted in a $107,416 overdraft, Pennsylvania State Trooper Aaron Brown told the Sun-Gazette.
That returned the Williams' account to $1,121, the amount in the account before the six-figure boost.
In separate interviews with investigators in late July, the Williamses "admitted to knowing the mislaid money did not belong to them, but they spent it anyway," the Sun-Gazette reported.
The two were arraigned last Tuesday and released on $25,000 bail each, the newspaper reported.
In an email to the Post, BB&T spokesman Brian Davis said, "While we can't comment on the specifics of this issue due to client privacy practices, we always work as quickly as possible to address any issue that affects our clients. We're also continuously working to enhance our client service and operating procedures to provide the best client experience possible."
A man who answered the door at the Williamses home said he was Robert Williams' father, WNEP reported.
“I have no idea, I don`t even know what`s going on. I`m just the dad, I have no idea what`s going on, I don`t know what to tell you,” the man told the television station.
A neighbor of the Williamses, Nate Weaver, told WNEP the incident was "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,” Weaver told the television station.
