Construction equipment stolen from SHA trailer

January 26, 1995

Burglars stole a construction gauge containing radioactive material and other construction equipment from a State Highway Administration trailer at Ritchie Highway and Route 648 in Severna Park Sunday night, authorities said.

The gauge is used to measure the moisture and density of soil. It is yellow, 2 feet long by 18 inches wide and weighs 25 to 30 pounds. It is in a rectangular carrying case and has a symbol identifying it as containing radioactive material, officials said.

Anyone who finds the gauge should call Anne Arundel County police at 222-8700 or the Maryland Department of the Environment at 631-3003.
