RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina newspaper deliveryman picked up a teddy bear on a rural road, only to have authorities tell him later a bomb had been stuffed inside......

Not realizing he was holding an improvised explosive device, Cannon left the bear and put the cylindrical item in his car for the 20-minute drive back to Shelby. He drove to his cousin's home, where he examined what he had found more closely in the light.......

Within about two minutes of walking up, they said it was an IED and cleared us out of the house," Cannon said......

..... Federal investigators are inspecting the device, looking for clues as to who made it.

Another bomb was discovered in the same area six months ago. In 2009, authorities discovered two homemade bombs several days apart in Shelby. None of those cases has been solved......

"If a kid had walked down the road and seen that bear, I'm pretty sure they would have picked it up," he said.

Short but scary article that almost sounds like Iraq or Afghanistan. Somebody in NC was aiming this device at children, IMO. I hope they get enough info to catch this so and so.
