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.
