State police have been put on alert for a possible threat against President Barack Obama, according to a state police spokesperson. Lt. Paul Vance explained he was given information by the U.S. Secret Service to be on alert for a person coming through the state who may have threatened Obama.
Obama is in Rhode Island Friday evening for a private fundraising event. According to a White House pool report, he arrived in Newport just before 7 p.m. The Hartford Courant reports that the suspect is believed to be driving a silver 2014 Volkswagen Jetta.
Nicole Mainor, a public affairs staff assistant for the Secret Service, sent the following statement: "Information has been received by law enforcement regarding a potentially suspicious person and vehicle. We are working with our local law enforcement partners to determine the validity of the information provided."
