Source: Man who jumped WH fence was on the grounds for 15 minutes before being caught

The accused White House fence jumper was on the White House south grounds for 15 minutes or more before he was caught Friday, a Secret Service source with knowledge of the matter told CNN Friday, and officials are investigating multiple failures that allowed it to happen.

The source says Jonathan Tran set off several alarms, but was able to avoid other sensors. The source said “the response to the alarm was lacking, and found (the suspect) vulnerabilities in the system.”…

Chaffetz wrote that the suspect also “may have attempted entry into the building.”

“If true, these allegations raise questions about whether the agency’s security protocols are adequate,” he wrote.
