A bomb scare shut down a Planned Parenthood clinic in Southern California on Saturday morning, but no people were injured.
After Planned Parenthood employees notified the police of an odd-looking device sitting outside their office in Whittier, Calif., the Whittier police force and the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s bomb squad determined the device was simply a pipe with wires sticking out, reported the Whittier Daily News.
The bomb squad blew up the device with a remote-controlled robot and declared the premise was safe for those who had evacuated to return around 1p.m. local time.
Police have no leads and are asking anyone with information to come forward. The police are looking into camera surveillance to hopefully be able to identify a suspect, according the local news source.
The scare comes after Planned Parenthood celebrated the organization’s 101st birthday less than a week ago. (Related: Planned Parenthood At 101 Years: 7 Million Abortions And Counting).
Planned Parenthood has not released any official statement about the fake bomb.
