LOS ANGELES — A threat to detonate a bomb at a subway station in Los Angeles was not credible, federal authorities said late on Tuesday, Reuters reported.

Authorities found no evidence regarding a specific but uncorroborated threat made by a caller who warned that a bomb would blow up on Tuesday at the Metro Red Line's Universal City station, the report said.

"Based on significant similarities, law enforcement partners also believe the anonymous caller may have, on a previous occasion, reported threats that did not materialize," the FBI said in a statement.

On Tuesday, armed deputies searched passengers' bags while bomb squad teams led dogs around stations across the Los Angeles County transit system, according to Reuters.
