NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Authorities are asking for the public’s help in figuring out who stole $1.2 million from a Swiss International Air Lines jet last month.

A $100,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the recovery of the money as well as the arrest and conviction of the people who are responsible for the theft, FBI Special Agent Jim Margolin told 1010 WINS.

The cash had been transported to New York from Switzerland aboard Swiss International Airlines Flight 17 which arrived at John F. Kennedy Airport on June 21.

The money was part of an inter-bank transfer and was headed to the Federal Reserve in New Jersey, CBS 2′s Dick Brennan reported.

The money was stolen between June 21 and June 24, Margolin said.

The incident is being investigated by the FBI and the Port Authority Police Department.

Anybody with information is asked to contact the FBI’s New York Field Office at 212-384-1000.
