TEXAS TOWNSHIP, Mich. Authorities say an antique $1,000 bill proved the downfall of three teenagers on the run in Michigan.
The Kalamazoo County sheriff's department says the trio stole a safe containing antique money from one of the youth's parents.
The Kalamazoo Gazette and the Birmingham News say they drove a stolen van to Birmingham, Ala., where an 18-year-old tried to exchange the $1,000 bill Thursday at a Service First Bank branch.
The U.S. Treasury stopped printing $1,000 bills in 1945, so the bank called police. Officers arrested the teen and two 15-year-old companions.
They remained in custody Tuesday in Birmingham awaiting return to Michigan. They're from Texas Township, about 135 miles west of Detroit.
