Drone Lands on White House Lawn; Reportedly Poses No Threat

Press Secretary Josh Earnest says the Secret Service will share more information

Device, possibly aerial drone, found on White House grounds (Yahoo! News)

A device, possibly an unmanned aerial drone, was found on the White House grounds during the middle of the night while President Barack Obama and the first lady were in India, but his spokesman said Monday that it posed no threat.

It was unclear whether their daughters, Sasha and Malia, were at home at the time of the incident with their grandmother, Marian Robinson, who also lives at the White House. The White House had said before the president's trip that the daughters would remain in Washington so not to miss school.

The Secret Service had no immediate comment on what it found.
