As President Barack Obama and the First Family returned from a New York wedding early Sunday, authorities continued their investigation into Friday's suspected threat against the President. Authorities say they've located a car in Connecticut in connection with the threat, the nature of which neither the police nor the Secret Service have detailed yet. What IS known is that the car is a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta. Police say it was found late Friday night near an ice rink and a group of apartment buildings in Hamden, a suburb of New Haven. Obama was about 90 miles east of Hamden on Friday night, in Newport, Rhode Island, for a Democratic fundraiser. Hamden police say a suspect was taken into custody late Friday, according to NBC news, but the Secret Service said on Saturday that no charges or arrests have been made.
