A Wells Fargo Bank is back open after a bomb scare. Someone spotted a suspicious van parked outside the building on Savoy near the Southwest Freeway. Manzoor Memon hosts a radio show in the building. He arrived to work Sunday morning to find the building secured and surrounded by police. He thought the threat might be connected to his radio show, which he says is controversial among listeners.

"A lot of the people have been wanting me to shut my voice. I thought initially that this was another tactic of those people to shut this radio station," said Memon.

A bomb squad deployed a robot to check the van, but officers didn't find any signs of explosives. The building reopened a few hours later.
