WASHINGTON (AP) — Another man is in custody for trying to unlawfully enter the White House, less than 24 hours after a fence-jumper made it all the way into the building.

The Secret Service says 19-year-old Kevin Carr of Shamong, New Jersey tried to enter a barricaded entryway to the property around 4 p.m.

Carr did not hit the barricades, and was arrested and charged with Unlawful Entry.

The Secret Service says Director Julia Pierson has ordered enhanced officer patrols and surveillance along the North Fence of the White House.
White House spokesman Frank Benenati says President Barack Obama has full confidence in the Secret Service.
He says the White House expects the review to be performed with the professionalism and commitment Americans expect from the Secret Service.
