BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. -

What would you do if you found a huge amount of money sticking out of an ATM?

Miami station WPLG-TV reports that Boynton Beach police said a South Florida woman found $1,800 in an ATM deposit slot and returned it.

Adriana Allen, 46, pulled up to the Chase Bank on North Congress Avenue on Sunday afternoon and saw $1,800 sticking out of the deposit slot, according to police.

Allen said she tried to push the money back into the slot but could not get it to work. Since the bank was not open on Sunday, she called police.

Officers came and took the money -- $1,800 in $100 bills, as evidence.

No word yet if Allen will get a reward for her act of goodwill.
