A small community north of Mexico city is now surrounded by a protective perimeter it’s where police found a radioactive container from a stolen truck that had been missing since Monday.

Both the truck and its hazardous cargo were located Wednesday — but the container’s protective casing had been pried open.
Authorities are now assessing the threat it may pose to the community, the thieves who took the truck are still missing.
One official says they’re likely sick from radiation exposure, or worse.
