White House intruder: Jonathan Tran jumped three barriers

The alleged fence jumper who breached the White House grounds last Friday night may have been on the property for 15 minutes before being detected by the Secret Service, Fox News has learned.

A person was arrested Saturday morning after jumping over a bike rack in front of the White House, two law enforcement officials told CNN. He's now in Palm Beach, Fla.at his resort, Mar-a-Lago.

The Secret Service said in a statement late Friday that Tran, after climbing several gates as high as 8 feet, was inside the grounds for about 17 minutes before he was apprehended at 11:38 p.m.

President Trump was inside at the time.

But the Secret Service was found to have publicly lied about how far Gonzales made it into the White House.

It took Secret Service agents almost 20 minutes to stop the intruder.

Tran had managed to climb a 5ft (1.5m) fence near the US Treasury Department, which is next to the White House. Mr Trump said the intruder was a "troubled person" and praised the service, saying it had done a "fantastic job" in apprehending the individual.

"It was complete and utter total failures".

Chaffetz told Blitzer Friday that he was not sure whether the White House doors were locked when Tran allegedly approached them, but "the intruder did not get into the White House".

Another attempted breach has been reported at the White House. A Republican lawmaker said it also suggested the Secret Service's security measures remain inadequate 2 1/2 years after a series of lapses tarred the agency and led to major upheaval.

Asked how he got there, he said he "jumped the fence". The Obamas were not at home at the time.

Trump has to find someone new to lead the agency.

Despite activating alarms, he was able to give secret service officers the slip at one security point by hiding behind a pillar of the East Wing entrance. Joseph Clancy, a former agent who came out of retirement to succeed Pierson, announced his second retirement last month.
