HAMDEN, Connecticut (REUTERS) - A car sought in connection with a suspected threat against President Barack Obama has been located in Connecticut, authorities said on Saturday.

The US Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, had asked state police for help in locating the car in connection with a possible threat to the President, State Police Lieutenant J. Paul Vance said.

Both the state police and the Secret Service declined to specify the nature of the threat.

The vehicle, a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta, was found late Friday night in Hamden, a suburb of New Haven, Vance said.
