New Unreleased $100 Bills Stolen

Posted: Updated:

A daring heist of a large amount of cash.  This isn't just any old money. It's new and unreleased. Your bank won't see this newly designed $100 bill until next year but someone else already has their hands on a large number of them.

Special Agent John Kitzinger with the FBI said,"Thefts and crimes happen all the time here in Philadelphia unfortunately but this is the first of this nature that we've experienced here."

The Feds say it was 10:25 Thursday morning when a plane from Dallas transporting the money arrived at Philadelphia International Airport. From there a courier service took the money to the Federal Reserve Building in East Rutherford New Jersey. But not all of it got there. By 2pm a portion of the money was reported stolen. 

"We would ask for any merchants or anyone who comes in contact with anyone attempting to pass the money to contact the FBI immediately," said Special Agent Kitzinger. You can contact the FBI at 215-418-4000.
