Colorado resident Najibullah Zazi is expected to be in court Thursday, charged with lying to investigators about bomb–making information on his computer.

With the arrest happening here in Colorado, are you concerned a terror suspect was arrested so close?

Wednesday night, we asked that very question.

For some local residents they are shocked his arrest happened in their own state.

For others it wasn't his arrest which made them worried, it's the threat to heavily populated areas such as sports arenas, luxury hotels and entertainment complexes.

More is emerging about the zazi, he recently filed for bankruptcy, more than $50,000 in debt.

However, officials doubt that was a sign of a coming suicide attack.

Authorities say Zazi has tried to mislead them, saying, for example, a possible attack target might be a big discount store outside New York.
Even with those possible threats, there are still residents who say they are not overly concerned.

Please comment below. Are you worried about the terror threat here in Colorado?
