Employees of a bank who could not figure out why an ATM stopped working, called a special technician to fix the machine, according to police in Florida.

Bradenton police said that they were called to the bank after a technician found drugs inside the ATM.

Police revealed that they know the identity of the last bank customer who successfully use the machine, but it is unclear if that person was responsible for the drug deposit.

According to the police investigation, the incident unfolded at a branch of the Suncoast Credit Union. While the technician was trying to fix the broken ATM, he found a bag containing a white substance in the deposit mechanism.

Police were called, and the technician handed them the bag with the powder, which tested positive for cocaine. So far, no arrests have been made.
