0

Police urged some residents on the west side of Costa Mesa to shelter in place on Wednesday, October 5, because of an armed suspect who barricaded himself inside a business and remained there for several hours before to go.

The barricade began around noon in the 1700 block of Monrovia Avenue after police helped the Justice Department issue a search warrant, according to Costa Mesa Police Department spokeswoman Roxi Fyad.

The Bureau of Firearms was executing a warrant as part of an investigation into the Armed and Prohibited Persons Systems, a system that monitors people who are prohibited from possessing firearms, according to the US Department of Justice.

Shortly before 8 p.m., the suspect was taken into custody, police said. No injuries had been reported.

No information on the suspect was immediately available.
