There is more trouble today in central Echo Park, with police searching for a robbery suspect on Logan Street near Sunset Boulevard, a police officer at the scene said. Police had Logan Street blocked off between Sunset Boulevard and Park Avenue as an LAPD helicopter hovered overhead. Police were advising residents who were trying to drive into the area that the street would be blocked for a while.
The search began only a few hours after a bomb scare one block away from tonight’s police activity forced the closure of Sunset Boulevard. Police destroyed what appeared to be a suitcase left in the middle of the Walgreens parking lot at Logan Street and Sunset Boulevard after a suspicious package was reported.
