  • Couple caught with rattlesnake, uranium, whiskey in stolen car, Okla. police say

Stephen Jennings was charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, transporting an open container of liquor and driving with a suspended license.

FOX News reports Stephen Jennings, and passenger Rachel Rivera, were arrested last month in Oklahoma after the vehicle they were in was stopped for expired tags.

A vehicle was reported stolen and pulled over by the Guthrie Police Department late on June 26, according to multiple reports.

Then, as the officer learned the vehicle had been reported stolen, he found the canister of uranium in the back. The driver, identified as 40-year-old Stephen Jennings, has a valid fishing and hunting license in Oklahoma that would allow him to have the snake.

"So now he's got a rattlesnake, a stolen vehicle, firearm, and somebody under arrest", Guthrie Police Sergeant Anthony Gibbs told local broadcaster KFOR-TV. Police said a Timber rattlesnake inside a terrarium was in the backseat. That was just the beginning: he then discovered the open bottle of whiskey (Kentucky Deluxe, in case you're curious), and a gun in the console. Rivera was charged with possession of firearm after a prior felony conviction.

How did a man and a woman end up in a stolen vehicle with a gun, a bottle of whiskey, a caged rattlesnake and some radioactive uranium on a Wednesday morning?

"When that happens of course, we call in a company that deals with that specifically and it's taken safely into possession", Sgt. Gibbs said.

It was unclear how the uranium was obtained, but police said it wasn't anything to worry about. "The uranium is the wild card in that situation".

The suspects also were not charged for possession of the rattlesnake.
