LAPD headquarters lobby cleared because of suspicious package

The Los Angeles Police Department briefly evacuated the lobby of its downtown police headquarters Tuesday after the discovery of a suspicious package.

LAPD officials said a manila envelope was dropped off at the building and run through the X-ray machine around 10:30 a.m., when officers decided that the item warranted additional scrutiny.

The lobby was cleared as technicians with the department's bomb squad checked out the item. Shortly before 11, the issue was resolved and people were allowed to return to the lobby.
