WASHINGTON (CBSNewYork/CBS News/AP) — The second person arrested in 24 hours for trespassing at the White House was a New Jersey resident.
Kevin Carr, 19, of Shamong, New Jersey, was accused by the Secret Service of trying to enter a barricaded entryway to the White House property around 4 p.m. Saturday.
Carr did not hit the barricades, and was arrested and charged with unlawful entry.
The suspect first approached one of the White House gates on foot, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said. He later showed up at another gate in a car and pulled into the vehicle screening area.
When the man refused to leave, he was placed under arrest.
CBS News correspondent Julianna Goldman reported that Donovan said Saturday’s incident doesn’t appear to be a copycat of an earlier intrusion Friday night.
Bomb technicians, fully suited, could be seen looking through a white four-door sedan with New Jersey plates and pulling out what appeared to be keys. Streets near the White House were temporarily closed as officers responded, but the White House was not locked down, CBS News reported.
There were no immediate details about why the man was trying to enter the White House. President Barack Obama, his wife and daughters were at Camp David, the presidential retreat where the first family was spending the weekend.
