After an investigation into reports that local man made death threats against Congressman John Salazar, the Grand Junction Police Department says it has determined those claims are unfounded.
Police officials say that investigation started after officers took a report from a member of local group that supports the President's health care plan during a rally that took place in downtown Grand Junction August 24. They say that person complained a man protesting the President's health care plan was harassing the group and made comments about killing Salazar.
Salazar's office tells 11 News it received that report from police Thursday.
His staff says they became concerned after they saw a man in the Congressman's Grand Junction office Thursday afternoon, who matched a photo of the suspect also given to them by police.
