LAPD: Suspicious package gets robotic exam

Box forces evacuation at LAPD Harbor Division

The Los Angeles Police Department's Harbor Division was evacuated for nearly three hours Tuesday while the bomb squad investigated a suspicious package.

Officer Ana Aguirre said the call came in just after noon about a box left in the lobby of the station at 221 N. Bayview Ave., Wilmington.

The station was evacuated "as a precaution," Aguirre said, while an X-ray machine on a robot was sent in.

The box's contents were determined to be harmless, and everyone returned just after 2:40 p.m., Aguirre said.
