Cocaine found in White House reportedly prompts evacuation
Something very strange has happened in the White House.
On Sunday (July 2) during a routine inspection, a suspicious substance, later identified as cocaine, was reportedly found inside the White House in a work area. The area in which the substance was found is reportedly a multi-level part of the famous house that contains the offices of the president, including the Oval Office and the Situation Room. Other offices in the vicinity belong to the vice president, the White House chief of staff, the press secretary and other staff members. After the substance was located, the White House and surrounding roads were quickly closed.
A USSS spokesperson shared,
“Officers with the Uniform Division of the US Secret Service located an unknown item in the White House complex. Out of an abundance of caution, the White House grounds were evacuated and the DC Fire Department Hazmat team responded.”
The white powder obtained was then analyzed and supposedly found to be cocaine. A website called openmhz.com, which allows the public to listen to live and archived radio broadcasts from first responders, reportedly shared a post from a DC fire officer saying:
“We have a yellow bar that says cocaine hydrochloride.”
It is important to note that reports claim President Joe Biden and his family were out when the incident occurred.
Secret Service spokesman Anthony Guglielmi has not confirmed the initially reported test results of the dust. However, he shared with news publications that additional testing will be done and an investigation is underway to determine how the substance got into the White House.
