WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House was put on lockdown Wednesday after a man threw "personal belongings" over the north fence line of the White House complex.

The Secret Service was making what it describes as protective sweeps of the grounds to ensure nothing dangerous made it inside the fence line.

Once the sweeps are complete, the Secret Service says the White House complex would return to normal operations.

The Secret Service did not identify the person taken into custody.
