Suspicious Device Turns Out To Be Movie Prop In Hollywood Bomb Scare

HOLLYWOOD (CBS) — A movie prop originally thought to be a World War II-era bomb prompted the evacuation of a Hollywood neighborhood Monday afternoon.

The bomb squad responded to a call in the 6600 block of Lexington Avenue around noon on a report of a suspicious device found in a storage unit, police said.

Authorities later determined the device was just a prop and evacuation orders were lifted.
