This sucker named Valentin Grossu was set to make the deal of a lifetime by selling 2.5 million euros (£1.8 million) worth of radioactive caesium to a member of ISIS the other week… or so he thought.

The amount of material he was selling would have been enough to cause destruction across several city blocks.
Turns out he hadn’t been negotiating with an ISIS member after all though, but rather an FBI informant pretending to be one. This is what happened when the two linked up for the exchange in Chisinau, Moldova:
Ooh how does that feel mate? No radioactive caesium for your ISIS buddies this time.
One of the Moldovan investigators, Constantic Malic, says this is just the tip of the iceberg. After all, the suppliers at the top of the chain are the ones who always seem to evade capture:
We can expect more of these cases. As long as the smugglers think they can make big money without getting caught, they will keep doing it.
The FBI and the White House declined to comment. Maybe they’re busy plotting on how to send Drake in there undercover.
