LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles police headquarters was evacuated for almost two hours Thursday night before investigators determined that an envelope containing a suspicious powder was harmless.

Police gave the all-clear at about 9:40 p.m. (12:40 a.m. ET Friday) and said normal operations were resuming.
