The Texas Department of State Health Services is looking for a device containing a potentially dangerous radioactive material that was stolen early Tuesday morning from a vehicle parked outside the Red Roof Inn Hotel in Austin.

The radiography camera, used to X-ray pipelines, contains a small radioactive capsule encased in a yellow colored protective shielding. The device is marked with radiation hazard symbols. A person handling the camera could be at risk of radiation exposure if the shielding is damaged or if the capsule is exposed. The camera weighs approximately 50 pounds and is about the size of a shoebox.

DSHS officials said that anyone finding the device should not approach it. Anyone who has information about the camera should call the local police or sheriff’s department or DSHS at (512) 458-7460.

The theft occurred at the Red Roof Inn Hotel at 4701 South Interstate 35, Austin.

The truck is owned by Acuren Inspection, Inc. The company is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of the device.
