A suspect has been arrested in San Bernardino, California, following an incident involving an exploding teddy bear. The San Bernardino Police Department responded to a 911 call from a local business owner who reported an explosive device detonating in a parking lot. The exact date and location of the incident have not been disclosed.
Surveillance footage captured a man placing a large teddy bear, containing an explosive device, next to an SUV before fleeing the scene. A woman in a red sedan nearby appeared startled by the explosion. Investigators identified the suspect and subsequently searched his residence.
During the search, authorities discovered a ghost gun (a handmade, untraceable firearm), over 200 rounds of ammunition, more than 1 kilogram of methamphetamine packaged for sale, illegal aerial fireworks, a ballistic vest, U.S. currency, and metal pipes and saws consistent with explosive devices.
The suspect, who remains unidentified, has been arrested on multiple felony charges. The evidence seized suggests involvement in drug trafficking and possession of illegal firearms. The investigation is ongoing.
