Suspicious packages at O.C. Del Taco are harmless, police say

Feared to be bombs, three suspicious packages in a fast-food restaurant parking were found to be harmless, Fullerton police said Friday.

Authorities shut down the area around Chapman Avenue and State College Boulevard after a report of three suspicious packages -- one of them with wires sticking out -- in a Del Taco parking lot, a Fullerton police official said.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department bomb squad responded to the scene and determined the packages were harmless, the official said, and people are now being allowed back to homes and businesses in the area.

The incident marks the latest in a string of bomb scares across Southern California this week following the bombings at the Boston Marathon on Monday.
