Police in Oklahoma say they found a rattlesnake, a canister of radioactive powdered uranium and an open bottle of Kentucky Deluxe whiskey during a traffic stop of a vehicle that had been reported stolen.

The traffic stop happened June 26 in Guthrie, about two hours south of Wichita. Police don't know why the uranium was in the vehicle nor how it was obtained, though uranium ore may be bought on Amazon.

Police also found a gun in the console and a terrarium in the backseat containing a pet Timber rattlesnake.

The male driver was charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, transporting an open container of liquor and driving with a suspended license; he remains jailed in Logan County, Oklahoma.
