New $100 bills stolen en route to Fed facility
CNN Money ^ | October 12, 2012: 7:40 PM ET | James O'Toole

Unknown thieves stole a "large amount" of newly-designed $100 bills bound for a Federal Reserve facility in New Jersey on Thursday, the FBI said.

Frank Burton, Jr., spokesman for the FBI's Philadelphia division, said the theft occurred at some point between when the shipment of bills landed at the Philadelphia airport on a commercial flight from Dallas ... and ... its New Jersey destination ... the courier service transporting the bills reported some missing.

Burton declined to comment on the amount taken, but said it was substantial.

"We're following all logical leads," he said

The missing bills carry a design that is not slated to reach circulation until 2013. They feature a large gold "100" graphic on the back, and an orange box on the front with a faint image of the Liberty Bell.

The only hundreds I have include a picture of Nezahualcoyotl on the obverse. So it wasn't me. I don't even remember what Franklin looks like.

A measly few $100 bills pales in comparison to all the $1's, $2's, $5'2, $10's, $20's, 50's 100's 500's 1000's and more stolen from our wealth over the last few years due to crony capitalism, trashing money to mudslims and palee's, and inflating the money supply.

Not a TSA fan at all, but this sounds more like SOP for organized crime in that part of the country. Freight handlers and freight forwarders all under their control.

More than likely North Korean operatives paid to have the shipment hijacked so they can get a jump on counterfeiting them, or even the Chinese.

The first place I’d investigate is the courier outfit that “lost” the money.

The more “advanced” our bills look, the more they end up looking like Zimbabwe dollars.
