The city of Philadelphia – arguably the worst city in America – can place another feather in its cap, after one of the city’s thugs stole a vehicle… with a nuclear gauge inside. The vehicle was eventually recovered, but the gauge has not been found.
The search is on for a nuclear gauge containing sealed radioactive material after it disappeared from a vehicle stolen in Philadelphia, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
The gauge belonged to KAKS and Company, a Montgomery County-based construction site and soil testing business, and was not inside the stolen vehicle when the vehicle was found. It is not clear when or where the gauge and vehicle were stolen. A message left for Philadelphia police was not returned.
Of course the call was not returned, because the Philadelphia Police Department couldn’t care less.
“It is critical for anyone who has information about the lost nuclear gauge to contact local authorities or DEP,” DEP Bureau of Radiation Protection Director David Allard said. “As long as the device is not tampered with or damaged, it presents no hazard to public safety.”
I imagine the thug who stole this gauge is smashing it with a rock as we speak. Here’s hoping he thinks the green liquid is Mountain Dew and drinks it all.
