Officials on Monday morning were trying to persuade a man to leave a Temple City In-N-Out, where he had been barricaded for more than six hours.
Deputies were called to the 10600 block of Lower Azusa Road about 2:40 a.m. Monday after an alarm went off in the restaurant, said Trina Schrader, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
When they arrived, they found a man inside the fast-food eatery. Officials called the restaurant’s managers, who confirmed the man was not authorized to be inside, Schrader said. When the man repeatedly refused to exit the building, deputies evacuated the surrounding area.
