Denver (AP) A Federal prosecutor in Denver says he doesn't know if security plans will change at the Democratic National Convention following alleged racist threats against Barack Obama.

U.S. Attorney Troy Eid says the three suspects were high on drugs when the alleged threats were apparently made. He called the men's plans “vague racist rantings” that were more “aspirational, perhaps, than operational.” The statements are still being investigated.

Authorities say the suspected drug users were arrested near Denver this weekend with methamphetamine, guns and bulletproof vests.

They are charged with drug and weapons offenses but not with threatening to assassinate Obama or with other national-security-related crimes.
