Another day, another suspicious package grinding our daily activities to a halt here in Los Angeles. This morning's culprit was a package found at about 8 this morning at the federal building in Downtown.

While the Los Angeles Police Department and their bomb-sniffing dogs were called in to back up the federal officers stationed at the building, hundreds of people were barred from entering the building, and traffic was blocked off.

Ultimately, the package was determined to not be a threat, and things are going back to normal in the area.
