Central National Bank in Wichita, Kansas, has filed a lawsuit against a woman who they say repeatedly withdrew cash from a faulty ATM.

The Wichita Eagle reports the bank alleges Christina C. Ochoa used the ATM again and again after she realized it was giving out $100 bills instead of $5 bills. The bank says Ochoa took out $11,607.36.

Ochoa denies stealing the money, insisting she has records of withdrawals and didn't receive any more money than was requested. The bank's attorney, Michael Munson, says of the more than 50 withdrawals made by Ochoa, 38 were made between midnight and 4:08 a.m.

The lawsuit doesn't detail how many others may have received $100 bills instead of $5s.
