    DENVER (CBS4) ― CBS4 has now learned at least four people are under arrest in connection with a possible plot to kill Barack Obama at his Thursday night acceptance speech in Denver. All are being held on either drug or weapons charges.

    CBS4 Investigator Brian Maass reported one of the suspects told authorities they were "going to shoot Obama from a high vantage point using a ... rifle … sighted at 750 yards."

    Law enforcement sources tell Maass that one of the suspects "was directly asked if they had come to Denver to kill Obama. He responded in the affirmative."

    The story began emerging Sunday morning when Aurora police arrested 28-year-old Tharin Gartrell. He was driving a rented pickup truck in an erratic manner according to sources.

    Sources told CBS4 police found two high-powered, scoped rifles in the car along with camouflage clothing, walkie-talkies, a bulletproof vest, a spotting scope, licenses in the names of other people and methamphetamine. One of the rifles is listed as stolen from Kansas.

    Subsequently authorities went to the Cherry Creek Hotel to contact an associate of Gartrell's. But that man, who was wanted on numerous warrants, jumped out of a sixth floor hotel window. Law enforcement sources say the man broke an ankle in the fall and was captured moments later. Sources say he was wearing a ring with a swastika, and is thought to have ties to white supremacist organizations.

    A third man -- an associate of Gartrell and the hotel jumper was also arrested. He told authorities that the two men "planned to kill Barack Obama at his acceptance speech."

    That man, along with a woman, are also under arrest.

    The Secret Service, FBI, ATF and the joint terrorism task force are all investigating the alleged plot.

    The U.S. Attorney in Denver has scheduled a news conference for Tuesday afternoon.

    CBS4 will have new details on this developing story at 10pm.

    Excellent work by authorities in this situation.

    These white supremacists are some sick sick individuals. Bat**** crazy too.
    -I don't feel you honor someone by creating a physical gesture (the salute). You honor them by holding them in memory and, in law enforcement, proceeding in vigilant, ethical police work. You honor this country or deceased soldiers or whatever you're honoring when you salute a flag by thinking, feeling, and continuing a life of freedom.

        I'm guessing there will be more than one plot during the DNC. Didn't they already arrest someone a month or so ago for another attempt. I saw a program about another white supremacist group vowing to kill him. People are nuts............

          The fact that they found Meth on the one guy leads me to suspect that they probably aren't the type of group that would've been able to actually pull it off, it being assassinating Obama. However, it does make me nervous that if there are enough Meth-heads running around trying to "kill Obama" to tie up the law-enforcement personnel, they might make it easier for someone who is actually serious about the job to get it done.

                i was thinking the same thing - they're supposed to make a 750yd shot, when they can't even drive a truck down the road.

                  Plus, using meth has to complicate aiming a rifle well, especially for a 750 yd shot. Even the North Koreans know that beta-blockers are a better choice for a steady shooting platform.

                    Good Job Aurora police! This is another example that shows there is no such thing as a routine traffic stop. None of the officers were hurt and they took some bad guys and drugs off the street and possibly saved a mans life.
                    Some people were just dropped on their heads as children more than the rest of us!

                      This is not surprising to me at all. There's way too many wacko KKK/white supremacists. Its gonna happen sometime.

                        Noone else think this is amazing!!
                        Anyone else think they can jump from 60 feet and break only your ankle? I say suicide gone wrong!

                        And when are the bad guys with big plans going to learn how to drive!?!

                          WHAT????

                          The way I read that, you are comparing a bunch of meth-heads to navy SEALs and Barack Obama to a socialist dictator?? What?

                          (The guy jumping out the window was like a SEAL rappelling without a rope, maybe, I dunno I'm still lost)

                            So you are saying it's Ok to kill Obama because you don't agree with him politically? Why don't you just Vote in the election?
