AGREEMENT STATE REPORT - STOLEN TROXLER GAUGE

The Ohio Department of Health reported the following via email:

"On September 29, 2020, at 0948 EDT, the licensee reported the theft of a moisture-density gauge from their location, Cincinnati, Ohio. Due to heavy rain the evening of September 28, a technician left the gauge locked in a company truck outside the secure facility instead of moving the gauge inside the secure facility as required. At approximately 0730 on September 29, the locked box containing the gauge was discovered broken into and the gauge and storage container missing.

"The gauge is a Troxler model 3411-B with a 8 mCi Cs-137 and a 40 mCi Am-241/Be sources.

"A report was filed with the Cincinnati police."

Ohio Item Number: OH200009

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.
