LAPD bomb squad incident in Tarzana
Los Angeles police Wednesday evening were investigating reports of a possible explosive device inside a vehicle in Tarzana.

Bomb squad officers used a robot to search a vehicle in the 5500 block of Reseda Boulevard after reports of a man who had caused a disturbance, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

The man was taken into custody while officers continued searching the vehicle. They were still at the scene Wednesday evening, the LAPD said.

A number of items were removed from the vehicle, but police had not determined if any explosives were recovered. The incident snarled rush-hour traffic in the area.
