Item Resembling Film Prop Triggers Bomb Squad Response in Burbank

Police in Burbank responded to reports of a suspicious package in the 200 block of Hollywood Way in Burbank Wednesday morning in what turned out to be a film prop.

The suspicious item was discovered in a grass parkway near several apartment buildings in the area prompting the responding officers to call for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Bomb Squad to come to the scene and possibly detonate the suspicious item. What appeared to be four PVC pipes strapped together with exposed wiring could be seen from aerial video of the scene.

However, after explosives experts examined the item, they discovered it was most likely a movie prop and did not contain any explosives.

Police closed Hollywood Way in both directions while they were examining the item. At least one apartment building in the area was also evacuated.
