Man claiming to have explosives nabbed outside White House

A man detained by Secret Service near the White House grounds said he had a bomb in his vehicle as he drove up to a checkpoint on Saturday night, according to a police report obtained by NBC News on Sunday.

CBS19's Washington, DC affiliate WUSA9 reports 29-year-old Sean Patrick Keoughan drove a "suspicious" vehicle to a checkpoint near the White House and stated "there is a bomb in the trunk".

Washington police said in a separate report that 58-year-old William Bryant Rawlinson of Silver Spring, Maryland, was arrested for unlawful entry.

CNN reported that two law enforcement officials told the news outlet that the driver claimed to have a bomb in the vehicle, but there was no confirmation of any device.

Security at the White House has been upgraded and local roads were closed as police check the vehicle for explosives. Last May, a man named Jesse Olivieri from Pennsylvania brandished a firearm at a White House security checkpoint and was then shot and injured by the Secret Service before being detained.
