LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The LAPD gave the Grove an “all clear” several hours after a bomb threat was reported Saturday evening.
Officials connected to a central phone service said they got an anonymous call threatening an unspecified location just after 6:30 p.m.
LAPD and security officials believe the incoming call number placed the caller at a facility in the Grove.
Investigators did not order an evacuation at the popular shopping and gathering center.
Witnesses reported seeing a “heavy” police presence combing the area in and around the mall.
The “all clear” was given around 9 p.m.
