Mexico: Stolen radioactive material found - CNN.com

Two thieves truck-jacked a semi in Mexico this week. The cargo was radioactive material that was going de-activating. The thieves opened the outer, protective housing that the material is stored in. This is despite the radioactive sign. Reportedly they will now be dead within 3 days...

The truck and its cargo went missing early Monday after the driver of the white 2007 Volkswagen truck and an assistant had stopped to rest at a gas station, local prosecutor Marcos Morales told CNN.

At around 1 a.m. Monday, a man armed with a handgun knocked on the passenger window. When the passenger rolled down his window, the gunman demanded the keys to the vehicle, Morales said.






This is the second time someone stole radioactive material in Mexico and has died/is dying from it, the other was in 1983 when someone stole an old medical device and sold the device for scrap. He died two years later.

Getting what they deserve. The radiation poisoning is a lot more punishment than a judge would have given. Dumbasses.

    Heard about this on a news story last night. From what the 'expert' said they are probably dead by now. From a marked barrel no less.

    Never go full Darwin
