After a woman lost nearly $9,000 in cash during a mix-up at a Wells Fargo in DeKalb County, she says the bank has reimbursed her.
Police, however, are still looking for the person who might have taken the cash.
Roslyn Baitney claimed that the bank is responsible for losing the money after she tried to use the drive-thru deposit system at a branch on Flat Shoals Parkway in Decatur, Channel 2 Action News reported.
She sent the money to the bank through a tube in the drive-thru line. But after the money went up, she told the news station, a teller said that “this deposit is too large, you need to go on the inside.”
After Baitney parked and went inside, the teller indicated that she had sent the cash back down the tube, Channel 2 reported. By the time they could check, the money was gone.
DeKalb police launched an investigation into the apparent theft.
Baitney said a Wells Fargo official called her on Monday and told her she would have her money back in her account.
