FBI: $1.2 million missing from currency shipment

By Associated Press


NEW YORK >> The FBI says a $100,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the recovery of $1.2 million that disappeared from a currency shipment and to the arrest of those responsible.

The FBI says the U.S. currency was stolen sometime between June 21 and June 24 as it was being moved from Switzerland to New York.

The currency shipment was brought to John F. Kennedy International Airport on board a Swiss International Air Lines flight.

The money was discovered missing after a count at the Federal Reserve showed a discrepancy.

The case also is being investigated by police at the Port Authority, which runs the airport.

I used to work for TWA at JFK and saw this kind of thing frequently. I actually foiled a jewelry heist once and got in trouble for it.

That's right. It's Obama's fault. The trade winds picked up and knocked a few avocados out of the tree in my yard this morning. That's Obama's fault too.

What is odd is that $92 million was left behind. The thieves were not professionals with inside info.
