Was it stolen for the lulz, or does the thief actually know what they have?

The Texas Department of State Health Services is looking for a device containing a potentially dangerous radioactive material that was stolen early this morning from a vehicle parked outside the Red Roof Inn Hotel in Austin.
One good thing, the material used to x-ray pipe is designed to degrade rather quickly. If the thief has plans to make a dirty bomb, he/she better hurry up.

What was stolen is called "the source" be industrial x-ray techs. Over the course of a few months the source becomes weak and has to be replaced.

This type of equipment is quite popular in the pipe fitting and road construction industry. Leaving them abandoned in the back of a pickup truck often results in it going missing...
