Ex-Treasury Worker Admits Cash Theft


(From CBS News)


Man Says He Stole 21 Sheets Of $100 Bills; Laundered Through Gambling


WASHINGTON, Sept. 6, 2006


He also must pay $37,200 restitution, including $1,200 to a Delaware coin collector who purchased three of the stolen bills after Faison put them into circulation.


David C. Faison was caught after casinos in Atlantic City, West Virginia and Delaware noticed $100 bills that did not contain government seals or serial numbers.


Investigators recovered $14,500 in stolen bills from the casinos and found nine complete sheets and most of a 10th sheet at Faison's house.


The Treasury Dept has launched an internal review to tighten up security, Lumpkin and Lambidakis say, and of course, Faison will have to explain how he did it.
