Police seek thief who stole $500, $1,000 bills


SHARON, Pa. (AP) — Whose picture is on the U.S. $500 bill? How about the $1,000 bill?

Police in one western Pennsylvania city say a burglar would be able to answer those currency trivia questions, because he or she stole one of each bill from a resident.

The high-denomination bills were taken out of circulation in the late 1960s, which is why collectors covet them. They’re still worth their face value — and more to collectors if they’re in good shape.

Sharon police say a homeowner reported the thefts Saturday. The large bills were part of $10,300 taken from a strong box in the home. Police Chief Mike Menster says there was no forced entry into the home or the box.

For the record, Grover Cleveland is pictured on the $1,000 bill. William McKinley is on the $500 note.
