UPDATE: The Los Angeles County Sheriff's bomb squad detonated a suspicious device found at the condominium complex on Hilton Head Drive.

No one was injured and the device was destroyed, said Los Angeles County Sheriff's Lt. John Saleeby.

"That would have caused the explosion (residents) heard," Saleeby said.

One person was arrested, but it was unrelated to the device found, he said. The scene was deemed safe and authorities began to clear the scene by 12:40 p.m. Any street closures have been lifted, he added.
