The Los Angeles police department spent hours on Tuesday utilizing highly specialized equipment to investigate a bomb threat near the Wilshire Boulevard Jewish Temple in Koreatown which turned out to be a hoax.

An unknown suspect called in a threat against the temple early Tuesday, with another individual reporting a bomb inside a police patrol car at the intersection of Wilshire and South Hobart boulevards.
