WICHITA (AP) — A Wichita bank is trying to get money back from a woman it accuses of making more than 50 withdrawals from an ATM that was spitting out $100 bills in place of $5s.
The Wichita Eagle reports that the Central National Bank sued last month in Sedgwick County District. It’s demanding that Christina Ochoa return about $11,600 plus interest.
The bank contends the withdrawals stretched over a five-day period from Jan. 13 to Jan. 17. Most were made in the middle of the night.
Ochoa’s mother, Christy Ochoa, is also named because she drove her daughter to the ATM. The Ochoas have denied any wrongdoing.
Christy Ochoa said her daughter wanted $5 bills to craft a “money cake” as a gift for an acquaintance who’d just had a baby.
