(WASHINGTON) —  The North Lawn of the White House was on lockdown Thursday after a man jumped the fence and was taken into custody, authorities said.

The incident comes just months after the Secret Service took numerous steps to improve security at the White House, including adding a short bike rack fence, and adding spikes atop a fence lining the perimeter of the complex.

The Secret Service press office was unable to immediately comment.
