Missing vehicle found after carjacking in Darby
DARBY, Pa. - August 24, 2013 (WPVI) -- Police say a vehicle carjacked in Darby on Friday, which triggered a response from Homeland Security, was found early Saturday morning.

The white car was used to transport radioactive medical waste held in containers. The driver had at least three pick-ups on Friday.
In the early hours of the investigation, the Department of Homeland Security was notified because of the nature of the material in the car.
However, officials later said the material was not hazardous.
Officers say the vehicle was found Saturday morning parallel parked and the containers were still inside.
An armed suspect with an accomplice driving a black Pontiac Bonneville held the driver at gunpoint Friday afternoon in the 200 block of Mill Street in Darby, carjacking his company-issued 2013 white Toyota Matrix.
