Austin American-Statesman - - VIEWPOINTS - Wash­ing­ton Post

A Cal­i­for­nia man car­ry­ing Mace roamed for nearly 17 min­utes in­side the se­cured White House perime­ter be­fore he was taken into cus­tody near the South Por­tico en­trance, the Se­cret Ser­vice said Fri­day.

Jonathan T. Tran, 26, of Mil­pi­tas, Calif., walked the grounds be­tween 11:21 p.m. and 11:38 p.m. ET March 10 be­fore be­ing ar­rested, the Se­cret Ser­vice said.

The rev­e­la­tion came as the law en­force­ment of­fi­cials re­ported that a lap­top with sen­si­tive se­cu­rity in­for­ma­tion on it was stolen from a Se­cret Ser­vice agent in New York City. One law en­force­ment of­fi­cial said the lap­top con­tained build­ing and se­cu­rity plans for Trump Tower, home of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump and his fam­ily.
