WASHINGTON — The Secret Service says it’s looking at possible criminal charges against a Virginia couple who crashed a White House dinner.

Secret Service spokesman Jim Mackin says the agency is moving closer to beginning a criminal investigation. He says that’s one reason the Secret Service hasn’t yet explained what happened when Michaele and Tareq Salahi arrived at the security checkpoint Tuesday for the dinner honouring Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Mackin says there’s less the Secret Service can say as the probe moves closer to a criminal investigation. He says the agency isn’t leaving any options off the table at this point.
