New versions of $100 bills scheduled for circulation next year were stolen Thursday during or after a flight from Dallas to Philadelphia, the FBI said.

A law enforcement source said $20,000 was stolen from a total shipment of several million dollars.

The plane, which was not identified, arrived about 10:25 a.m. at Philadelphia International Airport, Special Agent Frank Burton Jr. said Friday.

A courier service transporting the money reported the theft about 2 p.m. when its employees arrived at the Federal Reserve Building in East Rutherford, N.J., Burton said.

For those of you who think “I’ll just keep a big wad of cash around the house in case things get tough.” You may want to rethink your strategy - the old currency could be outlawed in a New York minute.

Wait, so 200 hundred dollar bills get stolen and it’s big deal? Not that exciting of a story.

Oh wow! I’ll bet that the FBI will spend more money on resources investigating this matter. Meanwhile the government wastes hundreds of billions and no one goes to jail, they only get re-elected.

Annual deficits consistently in excess of a trillion dollars? YAWN. No big deal. That's what printing presses are for.

Wait!! Alert the media!! We're missing -- you might want to sit down for this -- we're missing $20,000! I don't know what happened. It was here one minute, and then it was gone. This bad. Very bad. Can Obama save us??

Meanwhile, over 6 billion dollars is “missing” in Iraq. Where is the FBI on this one?
As to the $20,000.....well, that is just walking around money for BO.

Is it just a coincidence that Joe Biden’s dentures cost $20,00?

I think a strip search and a body cavity search should be performed on every TSA agent in the country immediately.

North Korea and Iran needed samples of the new bills for their massive counterfeiting of our $100s so criminals or spies in the US fulfilled their order. Both countries make excellent copies as a way to destabilize our currency. Although, Dear Leader Obama is way ahead on that front.

The money container was opened and some of the money was missing, Burton said.

There is much more than $20,000 dollars stolen. This had to be an inside job.

Oh, no! I’m not doing that again!

Er, I mean....I’m sure I don’t know what you’re talking about.
