For the third time in less than a year Mexican officials report that security surrounding the storage and transportation of nuclear material in the troubled state has been compromised. According to civil defense officials a vehicle carrying a lethal dose of radioactive Iridium-192 was hijacked by unknown thieves.

The Mexican government warned Friday that a vehicle containing radioactive material has been stolen, and issued a dire warning to the thieves against taking the potentially deadly material from its protective container.

The substance “can be dangerous for human health if removed from its container,” the officials said in a statement, adding that the material can be lethal even if handled for only a brief time.

The theft in Mexico state prompted officials to issue an alert throughout the capital region and in neighboring states.

Last year a truck carrying deadly Cobalt-60 was stolen and in June armed gunmen raided a research facility near Mexico City making off with a device containing Cesium-137.

The thefts, although not officially spoken about in Washington, have prompted fears from concerned Americans that smugglers or terror organizations may be attempting to produce a “dirty” bomb that could be used in populated U.S. cities. Though such an improvised device would not cause a typical nuclear reaction, it could still spread highly radioactive material for miles and cause untold damage if it were detonated in a highly trafficked area.
