Dynamite Found In Eagle Rock Garage Determined To Be Movie Props

EAGLE ROCK (CNS/FOX 11) - A homeowner found what appeared to be eight sticks of dynamite while cleaning out a garage in Eagle Rock Saturday, prompting a bomb squad response, but the items turned out to be movie props, police said.

The sticks, which appeared to be about 25 years old, were found about 2:35 p.m. in the 2400 block of Hill Drive, Officer Mike Lopez of the Los Angeles Police Department's Media Relations Section said.

Some homes were evacuated about 4:45 p.m., when it was determined the items were props and not a threat, he said.
