WASHINGTON, DC (CNN) - A suspect is in custody after getting onto the White House grounds on Tuesday.

The Secret Service says the individual jumped the bike rack along the north fence on Pennsylvania Avenue. No White House order for a lockdown was given, NBC News reports.

A woman was able to jump the White House fence in March, and a man, carrying a letter for the president, was able to do the same in March.
