Deliveryman finds suprise in toy

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. Anthony Cannon is a carrier for The Shelby Star. He said Friday he spotted the toy before dawn Thursday along his route near Lattimore, a tiny town about 50 miles west of Charlotte. When he picked it up, some sort of container fell out. He left the bear along the road and put the container in his car. After droving 20 minutes to Shelby and examining the container closely, he realized it could be dangerous. Cleveland County Sheriff Alan Norman says Cannon was lucky. Though the sheriff couldn't speak to the construction of the device, he said it was capable of exploding.
