    Target says it has fixed a glitch that caused delays at checkout stands at some of its U.S. stores Sunday.

    The company said it identified the source, and that it was not a security-related issue.

    “We sincerely apologize to anyone inconvenienced by this issue,” said Molly Snyder, a Target spokeswoman.

    One customer told NBC4 on Twitter that a Target store in Tustin was unable to process debit cards. The store handed out coupons for $10 off to customers, she said.

    Last December, Target announced it was the victim of a cyber attack that resulted in the theft of at least 40 million payment card numbers and 70 million other pieces of customer data.
