Suspect in Calif. bomb threat arrested
MONROVIA, Calif. — Monrovia police say a man who barricaded himself in a bank entrance and claimed to have a bomb has surrendered in the Los Angeles foothill suburb .
City spokesman Dick Singer says the man walked out and gave himself up Wednesday afternoon. No bomb was found.
Officials say hundreds of people were evacuated from Citizens Business Bank and nearby buildings after the man shoved a note under the closed door at around 10 a.m. claiming he had a bomb.
Singer says the bank staff refused to open the bank door but the man barricaded himself in the foyer.
