Got change for a grand?
A few teenagers are in trouble with the law for attempting to exchange an antique $1000 bill.
Police say the trio--- from Texas Township in Kalamazoo County-- stole a safe containing antique money from one of their parents and drove to Alabama, where they tried exchanging it at a bank.
The U.S. Treasury stopped printing $1000 bills in 1945, so the bank called police.
The boys are now charged with receiving stolen property.

    Why does local news make it to the national level before WILX broadcast it?
