Suspicious Car, Linked to Alleged Threats Against the President, Found in Connecticut

President Obama mocked with 4th of July floatAuthorities announced Saturday they had located a suspicious vehicle, which is believed to be linked to threats made against President Barack Obama, in Connecticut.

The U.S. Secret Service was in charge of the investigation and asked for assistance from state police in order to locate the car quickly.

State Police Lieutenant J. Paul Vance said the vehicle in question is a blue 2014 Volkswagen Jetta and was located Friday night in Hamden, a suburb of New Haven.

On Friday, Obama was in Newport, Rhode Island, attending a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser. Hamden is about 90 miles east of where the president had been.

The suspicious vehicle was found near an ice rink and a group of apartment complexes, police said.

Authorities are not releasing many details on the nature of the alleged threat so far.

While no arrests were made, NBC reports that a suspect was taken in for questioning by authorities.

“We have taken all appropriate investigative steps in this matter, based on the information we received yesterday about a suspicious vehicle and person,” Mainor said. “There have been no arrests or charges brought in this case at this point.”

The president safely returned to the White House on Friday evening.

    Dear men and women of our Secret Service thank you for working diligently to keep our President safe.

    Signed, The American people

    He should just resign he's totally out of his league and, clueless as what to do regarding foreign affairs. Who or what country looks toward the U. S. for any guidance, direction, assistance where the U. S. will follow through on its commitments. Boy are we in trouble.

    Travis smiley; your babies aren't being shot dead in the streets, these are young men being punks killing one another. This is not a racist issue it is a simple matter of a lack leadership by mostly baby daddy's and liberal politicians wanting to keep the voter base they've built on lies. Most black men are killed by black men and YOU AND THOSE

    I wonder if the idiots planning to assassinate Obama have considered who would become president if they were successful? God help us.

  5. Avery Edge says:

    Who know that the problem lies at home. Y'all are responsible for this situation by promoting the idea of being owed something and repression. It is up to you and the leaders of today to destroy these ingrained ideas, to teach responsibility for self, starting with yourselves. I do not live in these neighborhoods, it is not my nor the government's responsibility to correct these issues. IT IS YOURS!

  6. Kris Baker says:

    You have NO idea what's going on behind the scenes. Do you really want the President to say "this is what we're going to do next Tuesday against ISIS"?
    Of course not!
    Oh, wait. You'd support Reagan (Iran-Contra, "I don't remember" 97 times), Bush (lied to start the wars that have inflamed the Mideast).
    YOU are a seditionist living off government retirement.

    Please this is a flat out lie if there was any attempt or links at assassinating the president there would be arrest that's treason…

  8. William H Cranston says:

    This is the crap that makes blacks think america is still in the 60s

  9. Ken Shade says:

    William H Cranston you are in error on the treason charge. Under English law effective during the ratification of the U.S. Constitution, there were essentially five species of treason. Of the five, the Constitution adopted only two: levying war and adhering to enemies. This can be found under Article III of the US Constitution. Assassination or the attempt to assassinate the President of the United States does not constitute Treason.
