Police said no bomb or incendiary device was located.
SANTA MONICA, Calif. (KABC) -- A man who climbed the Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica Pier and told people he had a bomb was safely removed and has been taken into custody.
It all started Monday afternoon when Santa Monica police officers received reports that a man scaled the ride and was telling people he had a bomb.
Officers spent several hours clearing out Santa Monica's Pacific Park as they attempted to talk to the man, who they said appeared to be in crisis. According to a tweet from police, no bomb or incendiary device was located.
No injuries were reported.
Pacific Park has since reopened to visitors.
