Secret Service Director Julia Pierson stepped down Wednesday, in the wake of several security breaches affecting the White House and President Barack Obama.
Secret Service Director Julia Pierson said Tuesday she takes full responsibility for the breach of White House security.
A security breach at the White House earlier this month seems to have been far more severe than the public originally knew, in revelations that U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) called “really, really troubling.”
The second person arrested in 24 hours for trespassing at the White House was in a car with New Jersey license plates.
Authorities were searching late Friday for a possible suspicious person and vehicle in connection with a potential threat to President Barack Obama, who was in Westchester County for two events.
The hackers targeted JPMorgan Chase & Co. and at least four other banks in what’s been described as a coordinated cyberattack.
The bills were first discovered at a Dunkin’ Donuts on River Road in New Milford, police said.
Five New Jersey teens have been arrested for allegedly making counterfeit $20 bills and using them at local businesses.
The Department of Justice is investigating the credit and debit card security breach that affected more than 40 million Target shoppers.
The chain said that customers who made purchases using their cards at its U.S. stores between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15 may have been exposed.
The Secret Service says it is investigating a credit- and debit-card data theft at Target stores.
The allegations do not appear to involve a direct breach of Obama’s security, but rather sexually-related misconduct, recalling previous scandals that have cast a spotlight on the service and its traditionally male-dominated culture.
Authorities said Miriam Carey, of Stamford Conn., set off a high-speed car chase that put the Capitol on lockdown Thursday and caused a fresh panic in a city where a gunman killed 12 people two weeks ago.
U.S. Capitol Police who responded to incident are currently working unpaid due to federal government shutdown.
The Secret Service arrested a man Monday night for allegedly tossing firecrackers over the fence at the White House.
