(AP) Federal authorities in Philadelphia say an airport baggage handler has been charged with stealing $20,000 in a new type of $100 bill never released to the public.


Prosecutors say Alex Price was working Oct. 11 when a US Airways flight arrived from Dallas carrying millions of dollars in the new $100 bill. The theft of $20,000 was reported after the shipment arrived at the Federal Reserve facility in East Rutherford, N.J.


An FBI agent alleges in court documents the 25-year-old Price said he was the only handler with direct access to the cash. The FBI says after a polygraph examination Tuesday he confessed and led authorities to the missing money hidden in his car.


No listed telephone number for Price can be found. It's unclear if Price has an attorney.
