An unknown amount of stolen radioactive material has put nine Mexican states on high alert, the head of national emergency services said on Monday.

The Interior Department said in a statement a truck which was carrying the radioactive material was stolen Sunday in Tlaquepaque, a town in Jalisco state.

The National Coordination of Civil Protection of the Ministry of the Interior today issued a warning to the State Civil Protection Units of Jalisco, Colima, Nayarit, Aguascalientes, Guanajuato, Michoacán, San Luis Potosí, Durango and Zacatecas; As well as to the Federations of National Security members of the National Civil Protection System, due to the theft of a radioactive source, which can be dangerous to human health if extracted from its container.

This vehicle, brand Nissan NP, Model 2013, plate VS-58267, white with metallic housing, was carrying a mobile industrial radiography equipment with a radioactive source of Iridio-192, serial number 2200; The equipment containing this source is of the mark SPEC, model SPEC-150.

The agency said that the material could pose a health hazard if removed from its container and not handled correctly.

They specified that even a brief exposure (minutes to hours) to the radioactive material could cause “permanent injuries”, however the material poses no risk if left in its container.

  • Do not perform any manipulation of the equipment, or remain near it.
  • Establish a perimeter of security and guard with minimum radius of 30 meters.
  • Notify the finding immediately to the federal authority or if you have information on its location.
  • Emergencies: 911
  • National Security Commission: 088
  • National Center for Civil Protection Communications: 01 800 00 413 00 or 01 (55) 5128 0000, extensions 37807 to 37812.
  • National Commission for Nuclear Safety and Safeguards: 01 800 111 3168, 045 (55) 9199 8799 and 045 (55) 5415 2918.

here have been several such thefts in Mexico in recent years, but the radioactive materials have been recovered.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has identified radioactive sources, such as iridium-192, used in industrial radiography, radiotherapy, industrial irradiators and thermo-electric generators as those that are the most likely to be used to cause serious radiological harm because they contain large amounts of radioactive material.

Such sources can be used to build “dirty bombs” or radiation dispersal devices, the agency says.

“Such a bomb uses conventional explosives to spread radioactive material that causes injuries and creates social disruption through the evacuation, the subsequent clean-up of contaminated property and the associated economic costs.”

 The agency has been working for years to increase protection of such materials and the facilities handling them within its member states.
