Around 150 Del Taco customers found an unwelcome surprise in their bank accounts this weekend: a Ventura County Del Taco store charged customers thousands of dollars for small orders.

The L.A. Times says one customer, Michael Cole, tried to withdraw $20 from an ATM yesterday and got declined. That's when he found out he'd been charged $4,050 for a CrunchTada pizza and two beef tacos.

Del Taco told the Ventura County Star that it was a computer glitch, and that all customers would be refunded.
