An Oklahoma pair pulled over for driving a stolen car might not be in trouble for the rattlesnake or the canister of radioactive powdered uranium they were transporting. However, the open bottle of Kentucky Deluxe bourbon next to the handgun may be a problem — mainly because the car’s passenger is a convicted felon.
Stephen Jennings, who was driving with a suspended license, was arrested for that as well as driving a stolen car around 11 a.m. Wednesday, according to Oklahoma News 4. His sidekick, Rachael Rivera, was taken in on the gun charge.
The rattlesnake in the backseat, who was housed in a terrarium, isn’t a problem, according to cops. It’s rattlesnake season in Guthrie, Okla., and anyone with a hunting and fishing license can have one.
Where Jennings, Rivera and the rattlesnake were going with their gun, booze and radioactive uranium is unclear.
“When that happens of course, we call in a company that deals with that specifically and it`s taken safely into possession,” Guthrie Police Sgt. Anthony Gibbs reportedly said. “The uranium is the wild card in that situation.”
So far, there have been no charges on that matter. Police made traffic stop that uncovered the strange cargo because a tag on the stolen vehicle had expired. No one has yet been charged with stealing the Ford automobile Jennings was driving.
