A duffel bag left in the parking structure of Chase Bank in Westwood on Tuesday was deemed nonexplosive by the Los Angeles Police Department bomb squad at 2 p.m.

The bomb squad arrived at Chase Bank at 1:30 p.m. to examine the bag, which was thought to be suspicious, LAPD Sgt. Rabbett said.

A note on the outside of the bag read “Keep away confidential,” according to police.

The bag belonged to a homeless person and contained clothes and other miscellaneous items, Rabbett said.

While police were investigating, several Westwood intersections were blocked off, and foot traffic around the bank was redirected.

With contributing reports by Samantha Schaefer, Bruin senior staff.
