Following the threat, large numbers of police surrounded the area and a bomb squad conducted searches for explosives.
No suspicious items were found.
Following death threat, Cmdr. Yoav Seglovitch, head of the police's Investigations and Intelligence branch, tasked the National Serious and International Crimes Unit and the Lahav 433 Unit with investigating the incident.
Yitzhak and Meir Abergil were arraigned on murder, money-laundering, extortion drug trafficking charges along with three others in a Los Angeles federal court on January 14, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The 77-page US federal indictment includes 32 charges. Yitzhak Abergil, the leader of the crime family, will face 11 and Meir, the crime family’s money-manager, six.
