Police look for group that placed anti-Semitic package on Rodeo Drive
Beverly Hills police are asking the public’s help in identifying a group of seven people believed connected to a package found on Rodeo Drive that was at first believed to contain an explosive.
Shortly before noon Sunday, officers responded to reports of a suspicious package in front of the Chanel store, 400 N. Rodeo Drive.
On the package were written anti-Semitic comments, police said.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department's bomb squad eventually determined that the package did not contain an explosive.
Surveillance videos showed the seven people placing the package in front of the store. One young man is shown placing the box in front of the store, and another is shown taking a photograph of it.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call police at (310) 285-2172 or (310) 288-2656.
