A baggage handler for US Airways was arrested Tuesday for allegedly stealing $20,000 worth of new $100 bills being shipped to a Federal Reserve facility.
The FBI accused 25-year-old Alex Price of Philadelphia of stealing the bills earlier this month after they arrived at Philadelphia International Airport on a flight from Dallas. The bills, part of a shipment of roughly $192 million in cash, were discovered missing when the rest of the money reached a Fed facility in New Jersey.
Contact information for Price's legal representation was unavailable. US Airways ( referred questions to the FBI. )
The bills in question 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.
