The man who scaled the fence and ran into the White House on Friday night had more than 800 rounds of ammunition in his car and had been arrested in July with a sniper rifle and a map marking the executive mansion, a federal prosecutor said on Monday.

Omar Gonzalez, 42, was also stopped, but not arrested walking by the White House with a hatchet in August, the US Attorney's office said in Washington.

Gonzalez is accused of scaling the fence on Friday night and entering the White House, sparking a partial evacuation of the presidential building.
