It happened in the 19800 block of Prairie Street at about 10:50 a.m. and continued well into the afternoon, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The offices were locked down as federal and local authorities investigated the suspicious delivery which contained a keyboard. It caused concern because of how it was packaged. 

As the meticulous investigation continued, law enforcement evacuated some buildings in the area. After several hours, the bomb squad members cleared the package and lifted the lockdown.
