A robber was spotted breaking into a car belonging to one of John Kerry’s bodyguards, which was parked at the Secretary of State’s Georgetown home last night.
In a major security breach for Mr Kerry, a white male was said to have broken into a detached garage on the property at about 10pm before gaining access to the car.
Mr Kerry was on official business in Rome at the time, but the break in is sure to be an embarrassment for the team of bodyguards tasked with keeping outsiders at a safe distance.
A source told Fox 5 that the white male was spotted breaking into a detached garage behind the $4.7 million home in the exclusive Georgetown neighborhood where John F Kennedy used to have a home.
The trespasser reportedly then broke into a Ford Expedition belonging to a security guard, which was parked at the 23-room townhouse.
According to his official schedule Mr Kerry was at a dinner with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Rome, Italy, at the time of the break in.
Washington DC police are investigating the incident, but reports so far suggest nothing was taken.
The three-storey townhouse has been owned by Mr Kerry’s wife since 1971, when she moved to Washington with her first husband, Heinz heir John, who died in a plane crash in 1991.
It is not the first time people have been able to get close to Mr Kerry’s many luxury homes. At the start of September his $6.9 million Beacon Hill home in Boston was surrounded by anti-war protesters, who banged on his front door and windows.
In July, police also arrested a 29-year-old man who was spotted taking photos of the Secretary of State’s Boston home.
Mr Kerry’s office has not yet commented on the break in.
