A crook might have gotten more than he bargained for Monday when he hijacked a strange looking device from a vehicle in Parque del Bosque de San Francisco de Dos Ríos.
The device was designed to measure soil moisture and density by the use of radioactive particles.
The Ministerio de Salud said that there is no general danger to the citizenry but that inexpert hands can make the device dangerous.
Law enforcement doubts that a fellow soil scientist took the bulky device. That’s why they are alerting scrap dealers and pawn shops.
