(RNN) - Authorities have locked down the White House and detained a suspect carrying two bags who tried to jump the fence on Friday.

A Secret Service official told NBC News the bags the person was carrying were "suspicious," however, their initial screening of the bags did not indicate they contained anything dangerous.

President Barack Obama was at Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI, on Friday where he gave a speech before signing the new Farm Bill. He is scheduled to return to the White House Friday evening, according to his schedule on Whitehouse.gov.

Vice President Joe Biden was in Philadelphia on Thursday to help unveil Amtrak's new electric locomotive. He returned to Washington, DC, on Friday morning to attend the National Prayer Breakfast at the Washington Hilton.
