White House grounds secured after man threw personal belongings over North Fence Line

The White House grounds were secured on Wednesday morning after a security incident, a Secret Service official said.

At approximately 10:30 am, a male individual threw personal belongings over the North Fence Line of the White House Complex. The individual was immediately taken into custody by Secret Service Uniformed Division Officers. Protective sweeps of the North grounds are ongoing.

This security incident comes just a day after the agency detained a person fleeing a robbery who jumped the west fence at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, which is on the White House Campus.
