| AGREEMENT STATE REPORT - STOLEN MOISTURE DENSITY GAUGE|
The following was received from the California Department of Public Health - Radiologic Health Branch (RHB) via email:
"On 09/21/19, (Saturday), the RSO [radiation safety officer] contacted RHB and left a voicemail message to report a stolen moisture density gauge. The gauge involved is a Troxler Model 3440, S/N 28050 containing 9 mCi of Cs-137 and 44 mCi of Am-241. The gauge was stolen on 09/20/2019, between the hours of 2030 PDT and 0130 PDT, while it was charging at the user's residence. Union City Police was notified of the incident (Case # 190921007, Officer # 4740, Sarah Lings). Licensee will be posting a reward for the safe return of the gauge.
"Licensee failed to contact CA Office of Emergency Services (OES) regarding immediate notification. RHB will be following up on the incident."
THIS MATERIAL EVENT CONTAINS A "LESS THAN CAT 3" LEVEL OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL
Sources that are "Less than IAEA Category 3 sources," are either sources that are very unlikely to cause permanent injury to individuals or contain a very small amount of radioactive material that would not cause any permanent injury. Some of these sources, such as moisture density gauges or thickness gauges that are Category 4, the amount of unshielded radioactive material, if not safely managed or securely protected, could possibly - although it is unlikely - temporarily injure someone who handled it or were otherwise in contact with it, or who were close to it for a period of many weeks.
