Security alert at White House after reports of person with bomb inside car

Lynsey_ADMIN_Lynsey_ADMIN_ Administrator
Security has been tightened at the White House after a car approached a checkpoint, according to the US Secret Service, Reuters reports. CNN cites two separate officials who say a man drove a car to the building, saying there was a bomb inside the car.

One person was detained late Saturday after the incident, and the vehicle was searched, CNN said. It is not immediately clear if there was any explosive device inside the car.

White House guards immediately increased security, while several streets in the vicinity were cordoned off.

Later in the day, the Secret Service said it detained the unnamed driver shortly after his vehicle approached the checkpoint, but made no mention of an explosive device, Reuters reported.

What appears to be a developing situation comes several days after a man scaled a perimeter fence, a vehicle gate, as well as another fence surrounding the White House, and walked around for sixteen minutes before being arrested by security.

  • So what they're telling people is that Whitehouse security isn't as secure as they want everyone to think.

    I'm not sure it ever really was in all honesty. There seem to be endless incidents there stretching back years. I think the greatest security feature in place is the psychological barrier, which saves a lot of resources I would imagine, but people are starting to catch onto it.
