Attempting to steal a computer monitor from Clearman’s Steak & Stein in Pico Rivera on Tuesday night, 24-year-old Fernando Castillo found himself locked between two doors on his way out, as the restaurant’s staff were closing up for the evening, barring his escape. When asked what he was doing taking the equipment, he tried explaining that he was the restaurant’s manager, which may have worked, were he not speaking to the actual manager. The man was arrested on suspicion of burglary, but was absolved of any and all charges of impersonating a store manager. [LAT]
