(Licensee) of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. Professional Inspection and Testing Services, Inc., holds License No. 37– 28744–01 issued by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission pursuant to 10 CFR part 30 on August 4, 1999. The license authorized the possession and use of cesium-137 and americium-241 sealed sources to be used in portable gauging devices in accordance with the conditions specified therein. II On April 7, 2004, the Licensee reported to the NRC that a Troxler Model 3430 moisture/density gauge (Serial No. 75–5183) containing 9 mCi of cesium-137 and 44 mCi of PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47263 americium-241 (NRC-licensed radioactive material) was unaccounted for and considered stolen by an employee/authorized user, (namely, Mr. Pitts) who was performing work at a temporary job site in Prince George’s County, Maryland. This nuclear gauge, along with other licensee property, was last known to have been used by Mr. Pitts on March 25, 2004. The gauge was recovered in Bladensburg, Maryland by police on April 15, 2004, in an apartment formerly occupied by Mr. Pitts. Neither the licensee nor the police were able to locate Mr. Pitts and an arrest warrant was issued regarding the theft of company property that belonged to Professional Inspection and Testing Services, Inc. As of the date of this Order, Mr. Pitts remains a fugitive with an outstanding arrest warrant. The NRC Office of Investigations (OI) conducted an investigation into the reported loss of the nuclear gauge. OI Report No. 1–2004–027 was issued on February 9, 2005. Information developed during that investigation verified that Mr. Pitts was authorized by the Licensee to use their licensed moisture/density gauges until April 2, 2004, when his employment was terminated by the Licensee. Based on the evidence developed during the investigation, the NRC concluded that Mr. Pitts possessed the nuclear gauge for a period of approximately 13 days after April 2, 2004, when he was no longer employed by the Licensee and was not authorized by the Licensee nor licensed by the NRC as required under 10 CFR part 30. Additionally, Mr. Pitts did not maintain control of the nuclear gauge resulting in the loss of NRC licensed radioactive material in the public domain for approximately twenty-one days. III Based on the above, the NRC concludes that Mr. Pitts, a former employee of the Licensee, deliberately violated 10 CFR 30.3 when he apparently had stolen and illegally possessed the portable gauging device containing licensed radioactive material that belonged to Professional Inspection and Testing Services, Inc. 10 CFR 30.3 requires that no person shall manufacture, produce, transfer, receive, acquire, own, possess, or use byproduct material except as authorized in a specific or general license. The NRC must be able to rely on its licensees, and employees of licensees, to comply with NRC requirements, including the requirement that licensed material cannot be acquired, possessed or transferred without a specific or general license.
