TOWN OF LOCKPORT -- The Niagara County Sheriff's Office responded to a complaint in late November from M&T bank about a matter of a missing $2,000.

According to the NCSO report, the bank had mistaken given a Youngstown man $2,000 too much. And the bank wanted it back.

The report says that the man had cashed a check for $2,810 on Nov. 19 at the bank, 5737 South Transit Road. He gave the teller $200 cash along with the check and requested his $3,000 in strapped bills. The teller gave the man three packages of strapped bills, believing that each package contained 10 $100 bills. However, it turned out that two of them had 20 bills them, which the bank discovered at the close of business.

The bank called the man to ask him to return the extra money, but the man hung up the phone. That's when NCSO got involved. When they contacted the man, their call was instead returned by his lawyer who states that his client's alleged actions would be a civil matter -- not a criminal one.

The lawyer stated that he would contact the bank. NCSO, in return, is gathering evidence for a potential charge of fourth-degree grand larceny. As of the report being filed, however, no warrant was obtained.
