White House locked down after to security situation

Posted: Updated:

Washington (CNN) -- Officials locked down the White House on Tuesday due to a situation at a street entrance to the complex, according to CNN journalists inside.

The move came after a vehicle followed a motorcade into a secure area at 4:40 p.m., a U.S. Secret Service spokesperson said.

The driver was stopped by uniformed officers at the outer perimeter of a checkpoint at 17th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue and taken into custody, according to the spokesperson.

Due to tight security at the home of the President, even minor breaches can bring a lockdown.
