Authorities say three men who triggered an
assassination investigation after their arrests in the Denver area
did not pose a "true threat" to Barack Obama at this week's
Democratic National Convention.
U.S. Attorney Troy Eid describes the men as "meth
heads" who weren't capable of such an attack.
The investigation was triggered after police in the Denver
suburb of Aurora stopped a truck that was swerving erratically
early Sunday. Police say they found two high-powered rifles, two
wigs, camouflage clothing, a bulletproof vest and two
walkie-talkies in the truck. They say they also found three IDs in
other people's names and what they believe to be methamphetamine.
The three men arrested Sunday face drug and gun counts.
