Description:



The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality is asking for help locating a gauge that was stolen from a parking lot in Oklahoma City. Authorities say the gauge contains radioactive material and was stolen from the parking lot of an Oklahoma City hotel, located near I-40 and Meridian. The gauge was inside a construction trailer, which was also stolen. The trailer has Kentucky license plate "624-274." The Humboldt Scientific 5001 EZ is used to measure physical properties of materials. Organizers say it is a low threat of exposure as long as the gauge is not unlocked. If it is unlocked, it could pose a risk to human health.
