FBI: $1.2M found missing from NYC-bound Swiss jet

NEW YORK  — The FBI says $1.2 million in cash was discovered missing from a Swiss International Air Lines jet after it landed at John F. Kennedy Airport.

Agency spokesman J. Peter Donald says the plane arrived at the New York City airport on Saturday. He says the money was in $100 bills.

The FBI is investigating whether the cash disappeared from the cargo hold in Zurich, Switzerland, where Flight 17 originated, or after it landed.

The airport’s operator, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, says it cannot comment.

The airline says in an email that it could not confirm or comment due to the ongoing investigation. But it says it had “no indication that any valuables were removed from a Swiss International Air Lines aircraft” at JFK.
