UPDATE: West Covina City Hall evacuated due to bomb threat

WEST COVINA – Police evacuated West Covina City Hall Thursday afternoon after a bomb threat was made against the facility, officials said.
Police were notified about 3:30 p.m. that a threat had been made against the building, 1444 W. Garvey Ave., West Covina police Lt. David Rozeboom said. The threat came in the form of a letter that indicated an explosive device had been left in the building.
Officials evacuated all employees from the building as they brought in bomb-sniffing dogs from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and Fontana Police Department to assist officers in a search, Rozeboom said.
Ultimately, he said, officials found “nothing suspicious or out of the ordinary.”
The lieutenant declined to describe the specific language of the letter, adding that the investigation was ongoing.
“We have some leads that we’re following,” he said.
