Intruder scaled fence to enter White House grounds Friday night

Intruder scaled fence to enter White House grounds Friday night

Uniformed officers with the Secret Service arrested the person without incident, according to a statement.

The Secret Service said Tran carried a backpack that was X-rayed and searched and found to be free of hazardous materials. He reportedly was toting a backpack that was searched and found not to contain risky material.

A member of the Secret Service walks the perimeter of the North Lawn of the White House in Washington, last March.

Following the breach, the White House was placed under security condition "orange".

The Secret Service enhanced security around the White House after three incidents occurred in September 2014.

During his Saturday court appearance, at which he was ruled a flight and safety risk, Tran wore a blue zip-up sweatshirt, khaki jeans, a white T-shirt and glasses, the Post reported. He had the mace in a jacket pocket and a book bag with a book on the President, a U.S. passport and an Apple laptop computer. An official confirmed to VOA that the individual had no prior criminal history.

He was captured at 11:30 p.m. carrying a backpack, the Secret Service confirmed. Tran also writes that he's been called "schizophrenic" and that his phone and email communications have been "read by a third party", according to the documents.

Tran made his first court appearance in Superior Court of the District of Columbia this afternoon on a charge of entering or remaining in restricted grounds while using or carrying a risky weapon. "It was very sad", the president said.

"The president, in my humble opinion, is just not safe at the White House anymore because they're not serious about the security plan", Bongino said.

Security was tightened as a result of the breach, though a source tells CNN they don't believe Trump was in danger during the incident. He was apprised of the situation, White House spokesman Sean Spicer told journalists. And in 2014, a man carrying a knife made it inside the White House before he was arrested.
