State and local police departments across the state were informed by the U.S. Secret Service Friday to be on the lookout for a vehicle in connection with a threat to the president, state police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance confirmed.

Vance and local police have not, however, released any information publicly about the nature of the threat or the vehicle in question.

President Barack Obama was in Rhode Island Friday evening for a fundraising event in Newport.
