A man drove up to a White House checkpoint this weekend claiming to have a bomb in his car … marking the 3rd time in a week someone has tried breaching the grounds.
The Secret Service arrested the latest would-be intruder late Saturday night.
He was immediately taken into custody, and the White House was put on high alert. Surrounding streets were closed through the night. His vehicle was searched … there is no confirmation if anything was found.
President Trump was not home at the time — he’s in Mar-a-Lago this weekend.
Earlier the same day, another man tried jumping over a bike rack in front of the White House. Last Saturday, a man actually jumped the White House fence and remained undetected for about 20 minutes … getting right up to the building and even trying to jiggle doorknobs.
We broke the story … last week’s intruder had been turned away by Secret Service hours earlier. Yet, agents did not have eyes on him when he made his move.
