The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

LOS AN­GE­LES | Heav­ily armed

sher­iff’s deputies stood watch Tues­day at a Los An­ge­les-area sub­way sta­tion named in an un­con­firmed threat, and Mayor Eric Garcetti took the line to work to show con­fi­dence in se­cu­rity mea­sures.

Tem­po­rary bar­ri­ers were in place at the en­trance to the Red Line sta­tion near Univer­sal Stu­dios, and some com­muters were sub­jected to bag searches as deputies stood by with ri­fles and dogs.

The mayor, who had urged peo­ple to go about their nor­mal rou­tines, used the sta­tion to get to work.
