SHELBY, N.C. -- Authorities are trying to figure out who stuffed a bomb in a toy teddy bear in a Cleveland County neighborhood.

The bear was discovered on Thursday by a man who was delivering newspapers. The man said it smelled like gasoline and had wires sticking out.

The man alerted authorities and a bomb squad was called to the scene to handle the bear.

Investigators with the ATF are now inspecting the teddy bear bomb, looking to get clues as to who made it.
