NEW YORK — FBI agents were investigating a report that about $1.2 million disappeared from a shipment of cash flown from Switzerland to New York City as part of a banking transaction, authorities said Tuesday.
The U.S. currency — all $100 bills — was reported missing on Monday after a count of the money at the Federal Reserve came up short.
In fiscal 1999, a defense audit found that about $2.3 trillion of balances, transactions and adjustments were inadequately documented. These "unsupported" transactions do not mean the department ultimately cannot account for them, she advised, but that tracking down needed documents would take a long time. Auditors, she said, might have to go to different computer systems, to different locations or access different databases to get information.
Investigators now believe the theft of $1.2 million from a Swiss Air Lines flight occurred after the plane landed John F. Kennedy International Airport, a source tells ABC News. The investigation will still take a “couple more days,” the source said. “Today will tell the story.” Investigators initially believed the money was taken before the flight took off from Zurich on Saturday by someone who either knew what was in the crates or saw a target of opportunity.

somewhere, Samuel L Jackson is waiting to get whacked.
Swiss security has more holes than its cheese. A container holding $600 million worth of loose diamonds was left sitting with a gaping hole on the bottom at the same JFK warehouse where thieves swiped $1.2 million in cash last week, The Post has learned.
