Auto and bomb claim at White House sets off security alert

Auto and bomb claim at White House sets off security alert

The secret service is investigating an attempted security breach at the white house.

The US Secret Service have detained a man who drove up to the White House and claimed to have a bomb in his vehicle.

There was no confirmation on the presence of explosives in the vehicle, CNN reported.

Security officials got alerted after the driver of a auto claimed to have a bomb in his vehicle as he drove up to the White House.

The individual was arrested within two minutes of jumping over the bike rack, according to CNN.

Criminal charges were pending, the Secret Service said. White House is probably the most targeted place on the ... planet.

A Secret Service official speaking on condition of anonymity said the person was not found to be carrying any weapons.

A vehicle approached the White House around 11 pm Saturday and was deemed suspicious, a Secret Service spokesperson told Fox News about the latest reported breach.

In another related development, the Secret Service acknowledged on Friday that a laptop with sensitive information was stolen from its agent in NY.

President Trump was not home at the time - he's in Mar-a-Lago this weekend.

The person was not able to make it over the fence into the grounds, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said on Twitter.

Affordable housing is a luxury and we are going to get rid of it. Donald Trump does not live in affordable housing and neither should you.

A robot was said to be inspecting the trunk of the suspect's vehicle, which was still parked outside the White House.
