After printing problems caused a delay in their release of nearly two years, a theft was discovered Oct. 18 of a large quantity of the new notes.

They were stolen en route by air from Dallas to Philadelphia.

According to news reports, the FBI won’t say how many of the new notes were stolen.

The notes were part of a shipment to the Federal Reserve warehouse in East Rutherford, N.J.

As clever as the thieves might have been in taking the new notes, they will find they cannot spend them because they are not yet in general use. The new design won’t be introduced until 2013.
