Another person was spotted nearby on the 134 Freeway connector taking pictures of the building, the statement read.

The man on the freeway was taken into custody, authorities said.

Highway patrol officers said the man was in possession of a possible bomb.

All lanes on the 134 Freeway were reopened at 9 p.m.
