Small Drone Found on White House Grounds: Law Enforcement Sources By DAN GOOD and STEVEN PORTNOY Jan 26, 2015,
A small drone was found on the White House grounds overnight, the United States Secret Service confirmed on Monday, but White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the situation “does not pose any sort of ongoing threat.”
Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary issued the following statement Monday morning:
"On 1/26/15, at approximately 3:08 a.m., a Secret Service Uniformed Division officer posted on the South Grounds of the White House complex heard and observed a 'quad copter' device, approximately two feet in diameter, flying at a very low altitude and ultimately crashing on the southeast side of the complex. There was an immediate alert and lockdown of the complex until the device was examined and cleared.
