A Secret Service source said the intruder might have entered the White House grounds on the east side before making his way near the residence’s south portico entrance.

The White House was placed under security condition “orange,” one of the highest levels of security for the Secret Service.
The suspect was arrested by the Secret Service and taken into custody.

The President was spending the weekend in Washington and was alerted to the incident late Friday night, an administration official said.
