Feb. 15 (UPI) -- Two people face charges for possessing weapons near the White House over the weekend when President Joe Biden was away, the Secret Service said.
Authorities say the man and woman approached agents outside the White House on Saturday and said they were there to meet with the president and "had a letter to deliver to him."
Officials said one was carrying a weapon, which is against the law on White House grounds. They also told agents another weapon was in their vehicle parked nearby.
"During the course of the encounter and subsequent arrests, the individuals posed no immediate danger to any Secret Service protectee," the Secret Service said late Sunday.
One was arrested for possession of a BB gun and the other for carrying a pistol without a license, possessing an unregistered firearm and possessing unregistered ammunition.
