Canadian Crooks Lift Car With Radioactive Device

Talk about a HOT car. Sounds like these hosers got a little more than they bargained for when they stole a four-door purple Nissan Altima (classy) with a densometer in the trunk. For those who don't engage in the occasional road construction, a densometer is a device that measures asphalt or soil density. There's little danger to the thieves or chop-shop employees unless, you know, they open it up and play hockey with the radioactive capsule. That being said, if your idea of a good time is to steal a purple Altima, doing your best Marie Curie/Gretzky impression with potentially dangerous materials probably doesn't seem like that bad of an idea.
