The White House was on lockdown early Monday morning as the Secret Service combed the perimeter after discovering a small device on the grounds. That device has now been described as a small drone.

According to the White House, there's no indication that the device posed any threat.

"There is a device that has been recovered by the Secret Service at the White House. The early indications are that it does not pose any sort of ongoing threat to anybody at the White House," said press secretary Josh Earnest. He's currently with President Obama and the First Lady, who are both in India.

It's illegal to operate drones in Washington D.C. It's just plain dumb to fly them over the White House.
