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.

President Trump was in Florida at the time, ahead of a pivotal week for his Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch and the GOP's health care bill.

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.

The leader has also asked his party members to avoid making controversial statements and execute the promises made by the party. Yogi Adityanath on Monday met top officials of the state and distributed party manifesto for execution.

On March 10, Jonathan Tran, 26, was arrested after successfully jumping the fence and spending at least 17 minutes on the White House grounds.

Driving through the checkpoint does not offer access to the White House grounds. The spokesperson said no other information would be provided until the ongoing investigation is concluded.

On Saturday, a man tried to scale a bike rack with a letter for the Trump administration. He was able to elude multiple layers of security before being stopped near the entrance at the South Portico.

Chaffetz will be meeting with Secret Service officials and officials from the Department of Homeland Security to discuss White House security issues on Monday.
