As if there wasn't enough hinky traffic today. A suspicious package prompted the LAPD to close down streets around the intersection of Echo Park and Sunset boulevards this afternoon. Luckily by around 4:30 p.m., traffic slowly crawled back to its normal crawl once police destroyed the package and deemed the area safe. At around 3:30 p.m., police were notified of the suspicious package in the parking lot at Walgreens.
