Two Secret Service uniformed officers were fired Thursday after a man jumped a White House fence and managed to wander around for 16 minutes.

In a statement, the Secret Service said the investigation is ongoing, but the agency declined to provide additional information.

The incident happened on March 10, when 26-year-old Jonathan Tran approached the doors and windows of the White House.

The fence-jumping was just the latest breach of security at the White House in the past year.

The TSA fired a screener who missed a loaded handgun in a passenger’s bag Sunday morning at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Georgia.

Katrina Jackson, of Alabama, said she had no idea the gun was in her bag. When she later opened her bag to get her passport, she spotted the .38-caliber handgun and immediately notified officials, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

The TSA responded in a statement: “This egregious mistake was unacceptable and the officer who was still a probationary employee was immediately and permanently separated from federal service.”

So far this year, screeners at the airport have found 48 guns before they left the security area. The total seized guns last year was 198.

A former Secret Service agent accused of exchanging sexually explicit photos with minors pleaded guilty Wednesday.

Lee Robert Moore, a 38-year-old Maryland resident who once was assigned to the White House, pleaded guilty to one count of enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity and one count of attempting to transfer obscene materials to a minor, the Miami Herald reports.

When Moore was arrested on Nov. 9, 2015, he was working in the Secret Service-Uniformed Division and assigned to the White House.

Prosecutors said Moore began a two-month online relationship with who he thought was a 14-year-old girl. The girl turned out to be Delaware State Police detectives.

Moore also admitted to having similar relationships with minors in Florida, Missouri and Texas.

The Secret Service fired Moore.

J. Wallace LaPrade, who once led the FBI’s New York Field Office and helped oversee the safe return over several celebrity kidnapping victims, died on July 31 at the age of 89, the New York Times reports. 

LaPrade died after a battle with heart disease.

LaPrade was a controversial figure in the bureau and was fired as head of the New York office after being accused of hiding the extent of the bureau’s investigations of radical groups in the 1970s.

Before taking the helm in New York, LaPrade was head of the FBI’s Newark regional headquarters. He served 23 years as a federal agent.

Although LaPrade was credited with being more progressive on civil liberties issues than many in the bureau, he was accused to using aggressive tactics to investigate leftist radicals.

FBI Special Agent Fired Amid Allegations of Stealing Cash While on Drug Task Force

A special agent for the FBI has been fired and is under investigation for allegedly stealing thousands of dollars while working on a drug task force in Riverside, Calif., ABC7 reports. 

Scott Bowman, who joined the bureau in 2005, was escorted out of FBI headquarters in early February and fired. He had transferred to D.C. after being on the task force.

He is now the subject of a criminal investigation. Bowman most recently was a supervisory special agent at Washington D.C. headquarters after working out of the Los Angeles field office.

Now questions have been raised about Bowman’s handling of criminal cases, and about 75 current and former defendants in drug cases have received a letter from the government about Bowman’s termination.

The Justice Department’s Public Integrity Section and the Office of the Inspector General is investigating.

“The alleged misconduct was brought to our attention late last year,” said David Bowdich, Assistant Director In Charge of the Los Angeles Field Office. “As soon as we learned of that, we gathered some initial facts and we immediately turned this over to the Inspector General’s Office under D.O.J.”

The letter adds: approximately $15,582 in funds under Bowman’s control and possession that were seized during state search warrants executed on June 14, 2014 and June 25, 2014 in United States V. Miller, ED CR 14-89-JGB, are missing and Bowman has not provided any plausible explanation for the missing funds.”

Armed Security Guard Who Took Elevator Trip with President Obama Was Fired

By Steve Neavling

The highlight of Kenneth Tate’s career as a private security guard was riding an elevator with President Obama in Atlanta.

That ride has cost Tate his $42,000-a-year job, the New York Times reports.

President Obama was visiting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention when Tate took the elevator ride.

It was later discovered that Tate was carrying a CDC-issued firearm, a security lapse and embarrassment for the Secret Service.

Tate said it’s unfair that he was fired because he was only doing what he was told to do.

“It was something to tell my mom — if I meet him everything will be complete,” he said of meeting the president. “I didn’t know it was going to be my job.”

Jurors may decide as early as today whether Army Ranger Justin Slaby, who had his arm blown off, was unfairly denied a job with the FBI because of his prosthetic arm, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Deliberations of the eight-person jury began Tuesday.

Slaby, 30, says he was fired after the FBI discovered he had a prosthetic arm.

In the trial, the FBI’s attorneys contended Slaby’s prosthetic arm was a hindrance.

Slaby said he performed well on the tests and was unfairly discriminated against.
