Authorities evacuated apartments and sealed off a Los Angeles police station after a woman claiming to possess a hand grenade showed up at their front door.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the scary situation occurred just after 1:50 p.m. when the woman drove to the station with the suspected explosive device in her car.
Officers acted quickly and evacuated an apartment building across the street from the station in the 21500 block of Schoenborn Street in Canoga Park.
Both the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Service and the Los Angeles Fire Department were called to the scene, but did not arrive before the woman was taken into custody.
It is unclear if the hand grenade she claimed to have was real.
