Bomb Squad Fields False Alarm at Cal State

Apr 19 2013 7:04AM

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Bomb Squad reported to California State in Los Angeles after two suspicious objects were reported on campus, authorities said.

The bomb squad determined the objects were a professor's door chime and part of a student's experiment, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The squad declared the two items as harmless shortly before 9 p.m. Thursday night.

The campus had evacuated earlier in the day during a bomb threat, which turned out to be a hoax, the Times reported.

Authorities said the two incidents appeared to be unrelated.
