Pasadena police are investigating three suspicious devices near downtown and have evacuated four apartments and two businesses.

The devices were discovered in the 200 block of South Oak Knoll Avenue near Cordova Street shortly before 9 a.m. Wednesday, said Lt. Phlunte Riddle, a spokeswoman for the Pasadena Police Department.

Officers cordoned off streets and evacuated nearby residences and businesses, while a Los Angeles County bomb squad unit was called in.

“They are on scene now determining if the devices are indeed explosive,” Riddle said.
