A bomb threat made to the Los Angeles Police Department's Foothill Division station in Pacoima came from an unlikely place, police said Sunday.
A prisoner trying to "get back at the police" made the threatening call about 6 a.m. Saturday from a telephone inside the station after he had been arrested in a domestic dispute, Sgt. Jay Frey said.
But the man made one mistake, Frey said. He dialed the "911" emergency number, and police communications immediately traced the call to 12760 Osborne St.--the address of the Foothill station.
The station was not evacuated because officers "weren't too concerned about the bomb after they found out" where the call came from, Frey said.
