NJ Airport Worker Accused of Obama Threat

NEWARK, N.J. — A private security guard at Newark airport in New Jersey has been arrested on charges of threatening President Barack Obama.

Obama is scheduled to land at Newark Liberty International Airport around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. He is campaigning for Gov. Jon Corzine.

Port Authority spokesman John Kelly says 55-year-old John Breck allowed police to search his Linden home. He says officers found 43 firearms.

An official with knowledge of the investigation who spoke on condition of anonymity says someone reported overhearing Breck making threatening comments at an airport coffee cart Wednesday morning. The official was not authorized to disclose details.

Secret Service spokesman Malcolm Wiley says Breck denied making any threats.........
