Couple facing charges

MONTOURSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania couple who police say went on a spending spree after a bank accidentally deposited $120,000 into their account are headed to trial.

State police say Robert and Tiffany Williams of Montoursville spent most of the money on items like an SUV, a race car, two four-wheelers and a camper. Police say the couple also gave friends $15,000.

BB&T bank contacted the couple after realizing the error, telling the couple they were responsible for returning the funds. After they failed to repay the money, the bank took legal action.

The couple faces felony theft charges. As they arrived at court Monday, Robert Williams said they “took some bad legal advice” and “it probably wasn’t the best thing in the end.”
