Bomb hoax on Metro bus in San Fernando Valley keeps police busy


September 16, 2013


LOS ANGELES - A Styrofoam cup with protruding wires and a message left on a Metro bus kept the sheriff’s Bomb Squad busy for about two hours Monday morning, a sergeant said.

The cup was left about midnight on a Metro bus at San Fernando Road and Van Nuys Boulevard in the San Fernando Valley, said Metro sheriff’s Sgt. Andrew Bedogne, adding that “it was not left there by accident.” On the cup were written the words: “911. Remember,”

Sheriff’s arson-explosives experts examined the device and determined it was a hoax, he said.
