Michael Joseph Oleksik, 23, has a curious crime alleged in Florida. He reportedly became upset when an ATM machine gave him too much money so he proceeded to pummel the machine. It is not clear why he was enraged by being over-paid, but any concern for the bank’s assets did not extend to the machine itself.
What is curious about the case (other than the assault on an ATM angle) is that Oleksik did not illegally acquire the money and later called the Wells Fargo to say that he was sorry for damaging the machine. He said that he was “angry the ATM was giving him too much money and he did not know what to do.”
Law enforcement told Florida Today that surveillance footage shows the attack.
The Wells Fargo branch in Cocoa, Fla., filed a criminal complaint, Oleksik was booked into the Brevard County Jail.
