Police in Oklahoma says they discovered a rattlesnake, a can of radioactive powdered uranium and an open bottle of Kentucky Deluxe whiskey during a visitors cease of a vehicle that had been reported stolen.
The stop happened June 26 in Guthrie, about 30 miles (45 kilometers) north of Oklahoma Metropolis. Guthrie police Sgt. Anthony Gibbs told Oklahoma City TV station KFOR that police don’t know why the uranium was within the vehicle or the way it was obtained, though uranium ore can be purchased on Amazon.
Gibbs says police also found a gun in the console and a terrarium within the backseat containing a pet Timber rattlesnake.
Gibbs says the driver, Jennings, was charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, transporting an open container of liquor and driving with a suspended license.
Jennings remains jailed in Logan County.
