    Police have arrested a Massachusetts man after finding what they describe as a bomb at his workplace.

    Authorities say the state police bomb squad responded to Trew Stone Inc., a stone products supplier in Deerfield, just after 8 a.m. Wednesday.

    Deerfield police say "arriving officers were able to confirm that the device appeared to be homemade, and resembled a pipe bomb."

    The business was evacuated and the explosive device was deactivated.
