Trains were late setting off from Union Station in Los Angeles after a suspicious package was found inside the historic structure, authorities said Monday.

The suspicious package was reported about 10 p.m. Sunday at the station at 800 North Alameda St., said Officer Rosario Herrera of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section.

Travelers were evacuated from the complex while the LAPD bomb squad examined the package, which was found to contain clothing, Herrera said. They were allowed back inside at 12:30 a.m., she said.
