US Secret Service officers stand in the cordoned off Lafayette Park after a security incident near the fence of the White House in Washington on Saturday.

In a statement, the Secret Service confirmed that at 11:05 p.m. EST Saturday, an individual drove his auto to a checkpoint near the White House where the Secret Service detained the man and "declared his vehicle suspicious". There have been two other white house security breaches in eight days.

CNN reported that two Secret Service agents tackled the individual.

The episode was the second scare to hit the White House on Saturday, after a person earlier jumped over a bike rack in a buffer zone in front of the residence.

In another related development, the Secret Service acknowledged on Friday that a laptop with sensitive information was stolen from its agent in NY.
