BROCKTON -
By Maria Papadopoulos

The state police bomb squad detonated a homemade explosive device that had been attached to a teddy bear and left on Florence Street Monday afternoon, a fire official said.
A 15-year-old boy has been charged in connection with the incident, police said.
"It was a plastic bottle that had a solution inside the bottle that was mixed in a way that, after a period of time, it would explode," Deputy Fire Chief George Phillips said. "A teddy bear was wrapped around the plastic bottle and it was left in the street."
Police and the state police bomb squad responded to 19 Florence St. at 5:15 p.m. Monday after receiving a 911 call reporting the explosive.
A representative from the state fire marshal's office also responded, Phillips said.
It took authorities about 30 minutes to detonate the device with a robotic machine designed to disarm explosives, Phillips said.
The 15-year-old boy, whose name was not released because he is a juvenile, was charged with possessing an explosive device and disturbing the peace. He was scheduled to be arraigned in Brockton District Court today.
