Traffic Snarled Due to Threat of Explosives

Santa Anita Avenue was blocked to through traffic for about an hour or two yesterday between Live Oak and Longden shortly after 3:00 PM. APD Officers and Arcadia Fire responded to a residence at Palm Drive and Santa Anita after construction workers found what they believed to be sticks of dynamite in the attic. Surrounding residents were evacuated, traffic diverted and the LASD Bomb Squad was called to assist. Bomb technicians found that the "explosives" were actually 30-40 year old, paper wrapped batteries that resembled industrial dynamite.
