CA - Los Angeles buildings emptied after devices found
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A police bomb squad was detonating homemade explosive devices found in an apartment on Wednesday after a traffic stop revealed a potentially dangerous liquid in a man's car, authorities said.
The man remained in custody as police evacuated several buildings and destroyed at least four devices. Authorities believe the man was acting alone, and said there were no apparent links to terrorism.............
That discovery prompted the search of the man's apartment. The complex and three surrounding buildings were evacuated, and several blocks were sealed off.
Officers were taking the explosive devices to a closed off street and disarming them, fire Capt. Jaime Moore said...........
The man had not yet been booked because investigators were still determining the extent of any possible crimes, Lopez said.........more.............
