The calls came in at around 7 pm on Sunday and police arrived in minutes to Pump and detained the suspect.
The man in question was allegedly attempting to cut the gate with his shears but then when he was spotted by a witness, he placed them in his backpack and stood there as if nothing was wrong, the outlet reported.
The man, who wore a face mask and backpack, has previously been seen in the area before.
The police spoke to the restaurants’ general manager and they are not pressing charging since no damages occurred, TMZ’s source said.

Lisa’s husband Ken Todd told TMZ: ‘He was desperate for a Pump-tini. We can’t blame him.’
In January, the same restaurant was hit by a swerving Ferrari, damaging the patio of the establishment.
‘No, we are not a drive-thru!’ the reality star wrote on Instagram after it happened, with shots of the crash, after police told TMZ that the building itself was not impacted and that the driver of the Ferrari was not under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
In the incident, the Ferrari jumped the curb at the eatery (which is located at Santa Monica and Robertson boulevards) and careened into the patio, leaving a mess of broken glass in the immediate area.

Police later confirmed to the outlet that the driver of the Ferrari had been cut off by another motorist in traffic, leading to him swerving into the patio of the upscale establishment owned by the Bravo beauty and her husband, Ken.
Todd was at the scene after it occurred as firefighters and emergency workers attended to the crash site. A woman was transported to a nearby hospital with cuts to her arm, Todd told TMZ.
The motorist was able to operate the Ferrari and maneuver off of the patio without incident, the outlet confirmed.
Eyewitnesses told The Advocate that the Ferrari had swerved out of the way of a stationary blue vehicle before it made contact with the patio.
The reality star’s rep told Page Six, ‘We are very lucky that everyone else was uninjured and safe while dining during Sunday brunch.’
The English socialite and her spouse opened the upscale eatery in May of 2014, as it’s one of the many venues they own and operate.
‘We have created a space that feels as if you alone have discovered it, as you wonder how on earth you haven’t been here before,’ Vanderpump said on the restaurant’s website.
