Bomb or Skateboard? Police Take Action in Venice
Apparently, a suspicious package was reported in Venice yesterday, prompting the LAPD to shut down the area around Market Street, reports neighborhood blog Yo! Venice. "As you can see in the pictures, it appears they diffused a skateboard by blowing it up. Better safe than sorry we assume, so thanks for 'lookin’ out,' LAPD." In the end, it was a false alarm and no one was hurt. A robot took the package to Ocean Front Walk before destroying it. According to a forum discussion, it was a package full of skateboard parts.
