Bank of America says customers who received $100 bills instead of $10 bills at a Houston-area ATM can keep the extra cash.
"This was an incident at a single ATM in Houston caused when a vendor incorrectly loaded $100 bills in place of $10 bills. We have resolved the matter. Customers will be able to keep the additional money dispensed," Bank of America said in a statement Monday.
Harris County Sheriff's officials said deputies noticed a number of people crowded around an ATM, stopped to investigate and learned $100 bills were wrongly being dispensed.
Other law enforcement personnel also noticed a posting online about an errant ATM and the ATM was shut down and guarded while the bank was notified.

Authorities didn't immediately say how much money was erroneously dispensed.
The original report from The Associated Press said the customers received $100 bills instead of $20 bills. The statement from the bank clarified the incident.
