NEWARK, Del. -

When an ATM mistakenly gave college student Devon Gluck $1,800 in cash, at first, he tells FOX 29 he kept it. But nine days later, Gluck says he knew he had to do the right thing.

The University of Delaware student spoke to FOX 29 Tuesday about what was going through his mind.

"I was wearing sunglasses so in my mind, I could have been like 'no one saw me - I didn't put my card in, I would have never gotten caught,' but it wasn't even about that," Gluck said. "It was more so about, this was a huge part of giving the money back, because it belonged to someone else."

The cash actually belongs to another student whose account would have been wiped out.

The bank thanked Gluck for being so honest.
