  • Bomb scare at White House, one detained

Police said Sunday night that William Bryant Rawlinson, 58, of Silver Spring, Md., was arrested on a charge of unlawful entry.

CNN says there was no confirmation there was any device in the vehicle but security at the White House has been upgraded.

As per CNN reporter Ryan Nobles on scene, members of the police bomb squad were pulling items out of the trunk and investigating them one by one.

President Trump was in the residence at the time but was not threatened, the Secret Service said.

President Trump was inside the White House during the breach, but the intruder, who was identified as 26-year-old Jonathan Tran of California, was not able to enter the building.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino's statement came a week after the arrest of a man who jumped the White House fence and roamed around the highly-secured property for more than 15 minutes.

A man jumped over a bike rack Saturday afternoon, causing the White House to go into lockdown and the security level to be raised as Secret Service assessed the threat.

The vehicle was stopped Saturday around 11:00 p.m. about a quarter-mile from the White House.

President Trump wasn't home this weekend, but two people got on White House grounds while he was away.

"This is a test", the man said as a Secret Service officer detained him and took him to the ground, according to the report.

"The men and women of the Secret Service are extremely disappointed and angry in how the events of March 10 transpired", the statement said. He made his way to the South Portico entrance before being apprehended.

"The Secret Service can not even keep one person off the grounds - what will they do if 40 terrorists charge the White House?".
