According to a report form NBC Connecticut, the Secret Service said earlier on Friday  that a suspect may have been driving a 2014 blue VW Jetta car with Connecticut plates. It is unclear at this time if the car located was the blue Jetta and how the person taken into custody may be connected or whether the person is still in custody.

President Obama landed in Air Force One at Westchester County Airport just before 2:00 pm on Friday, resulting in detours and traffic in Westchester, where between 1:30 and 5:30pm,  there were road closures on the highways including I-684 between Purchase and Armonk, I-287 between White Plains and Port Chester, and I-95 between Pelham and the Connecticut State Line.
