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.
