Missing truck with hazardous materials found
FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) -- Police arrest a man who was driving a stolen vehicle that was "hot" in more ways than one.
The pickup owned by Cardinal Health Nuclear Pharmacy Services contained radioactive material.
The vehicle was stolen in Seekonk yesterday and later spotted by two police officers about ten miles away in Fall River.
Fall River Sgt. Roger LaFleur says he and another officer followed the truck cautiously because of its radioactive contents and slick road conditions.
They took the driver into custody after the pickup stopped.
A city hazardous materials team determined the five containers carrying suspected radioactive material had not been opened.
John Germano of Fall River was arrested and charged with receiving a stolen vehicle.
