Customs agents at John F. Kennedy Airport say they recently found more than $200,000 in counterfeit money coming through a cargo facility.

The phony cash was made up of bogus hundred dollar bills.

Officers say they found the bills hidden in two packages on two consecutive days earlier this month.

They say one was labeled "Handycraft Pictures" and contained laminated photos and protective cases for computers and other electronics.

The bills were taped inside the pictures and covers.

The next day agents say they found more bills inside a similar shipment labelled "Handycraft Bags."

The incidents are under investigation.
