OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla._The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality is asking for your help in finding a stolen gauge that contains radioactive material.

The Troxler Model 3430 gauge is used to measure the density and moisture content of soil. It represents a low threat of exposure as long as the gauge remains locked. If it is unlocked and opened, it can pose a risk to human health.

The gauge was stolen from the area of East Reno Avenue and South Eastern Avenue in Oklahoma City. DEQ urges anyone with information about the gauge to contact their Radiation Management section at 1-800-522-0206 or 1-405-702-5100. A $500 reward is being offered.
