As we reported yesterday, both the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the La Brea Tar Pits were closed for most of the day and evening on Friday for investigation of an at-the-time unspecified threat.
Police spent most of the day investigating, and both organizations were given an “all clear” around 5 p.m.
According to Patch.com:
“The threat was received about 10:45 a.m. to the facilities in the 5800 and 5900 blocks of Wilshire Boulevard, according to Los Angeles police Officer Tony Im, who said threat came in the form of “an automated voice recording” that warned of an explosion that was to occur at a specific time, reported to be 2 p.m.”
That deadline passed without incident, however, and apparently no further signs of danger were found. Both facilities are set to open as usual today.
