Teenager Charged After Taking World's Most Ill-Advised Novelty Clock Through Airport Security

When you are taking your carry-on luggage through airport security - probably best thinking how your possessions will look in the x-ray machines.

A replica dynamite bomb alarm clock is not the best thing to take on an airplane as this 15-year-old found out at Pearson International Airport in Toronto.

When the security officers spotted the suspected bomb - they cleared the area and called Peel Police who sent in the Explosive Disposal Unit. After two hours of investigation, the area was re-opened.

According to Police Constable George Tudos - the teenage boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged with mischief and is expected to appear in court in October.

Toronto Star reported that American company Nootropic Design who design identical alarm clocks stated: ‘Dear Pranksters: Yeah, you. I know you are excited to scare your friends and coworkers with a phony bomb, but use your head. This kind of device can make people freak out and call the authorities.

‘So don’t bring this to school or to work, and certainly don’t bring it anywhere near an airport! Seriously, don’t get yourself into trouble.’
