The threat was called in to the station located in the 1100 block of North Batavia Street just after 5 a.m., Officer Fred Lopez of the Orange Police Department stated in an email to KTLA.

The building had to be evacuated as a bomb squad searched the building with bomb sniffing dogs, Lopez stated

The building had been cleared, and people were being allowed back in, Lopez emailed about 7:15 a.m.

It was unclear if investigators found anything during the search of the building.
