We gave someone cash by mistake - it there anything I can legally do?

Where I work we (not I!) had two envelopes in the safe, one containing 100 and one with 300. The wrong envelope was given to the wrong person - they were expecting the 100, we gave them the 300 by mistake. They are now refusing to give it back. Well, not outright refusing, but avoiding our calls and being uncooperative.

Legally, is there anything we could do? I mean, is this a crime?

(I'm in the UK).
