According to the Epoch Times, police responded to a bomb threat at a US Airways cargo area at the Los Angeles International Airport Wednesday afternoon. 

Authorities upgraded an item to "suspicious" as soon as a canine alerted authorities of a mysterious package. 

The area was evacuated, and the LAPD Bomb Squad was enroute after the call came in at 2:21 p.m. local time. 

At 3:25 p.m., LAX reported that the area is now clear, and the suspicious package has been removed.
