This is the bizarre moment when Oklahoma police say they found radioactive uranium, a rattlesnake, an open bottle of bourbon, and a gun during a routine traffic stop.
Two people were arrested after officers found the unusual items in the vehicle on Wednesday morning in Guthrie.
Driver Stephen Jennings, 40, is in charge of owning a stolen vehicle, transporting an open container with liquor, driving a vehicle with a suspended license, and not wearing a security verification form.
The passenger, convicted criminal Rachael Rivera, 30, is charged with possession of a firearm after a previous felony conviction.
The police station cam showed the moment the couple was approached by officers who opened the back door of the car and found a poisonous wood rattlesnake.
An agent remarks: & # 39; That sucker is huge. & # 39;

Jennings, who was driving with a suspended driver's license, then tells the police that he has a gun in the car that the police then heard was stolen.
Guthrie Police Sgt. Anthony Gibbs said: & # 39; So now he has a rattlesnake, a stolen vehicle, a firearm and someone who has been arrested. & # 39;
A further search discovered open bottle of Kentucky Deluxe next to the firearm and the bus with radioactive uranium powder, police say.
The stop was made because the tag has expired, KFOR reports.
Gibbs added: & # 39; If that happens, we will call a company that is specifically working on it and will get it safely. The uranium is the wild card in that situation. & # 39;
Neither Jennings nor Rivera are currently confronted with indictments about the uranium.

Sgt Gibbs said: & coincidentally it is rattlesnake season at that time, so he may be in possession of this rattlesnake because he has a valid lifelong hunting and fishing license. & # 39;
& # 39; It was nothing we were worried about if he would use it as a weapon of mass destruction & # 39 ;, Gibbs said. & # 39; It has very low radioactivity. & # 39;
The couple were both booked at Logan County Jail. They stayed there on Thursday morning on an indefinite bail.
