PALM SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) - Authorities detonated a suspicious device found in the back of a man's car in South Florida.

Authorities say no one was injured during the detonation.

A deputy noticed the device during a routine traffic stop. When asked about it, the man said he didn't know what it was even though it was his car.

The bomb squad was called in as a precaution.
