    A Southern California police bomb squad detonated a suspicious device underneath a freeway in Sun Valley early Friday.

    It is still unclear if the object, which was orignally described as a suspicious tube with a fuse attached to it, was in fact a bomb, California Highway Patrol said.

    It was discovered underneath the freeway near the Sheldon Street offramp at around 12:30 a.m.

    All lanes were closed on the northbound 5 freeway south of Lankershim and the southbound 5 freeway north of the 170 during the investigation.

    The Los Angeles Police Department destroyed the device at around 3:30 a.m, and all lanes reopened at around 3:50 a.m.
