A bomb threat prompted a more than two-hour closure of portions of the northbound 405 Freeway and westbound 118 Freeway in Mission Hills.

California Highway Patrol officers received reports of a suspicious device on the 118 Freeway around 12:45 p.m Sunday.

The report caused officers to shut down a section of the 118 Freeway and 405 Freeway near Roscoe Boulevard. Authorities investigated the scene and it is unknown if anything was found.

The freeways were reopened shortly before 3 p.m., and one person was arrested in connection to the incident.

The investigation was ongoing.
