Alleged ATM robber caught

By Washington Post editors

Apparently, the Salahis weren't the only people who got into a bit of trouble the night the Obamas hosted their second state dinner.

Police say a person targeting ATM users was caught because he tried to commit a robbery near the White House on Wednesday, WJLA reports.

Police say a 43-year-old man was arrested attempting a robbery Wednesday night at an ATM at 17th and I streets NW.

Secret Service had saturated the area because of increased security surrounding the state dinner.

I walk through that intersection everyday, its one of the most heavily policed areas in the entire world.
