SCRANTON, Pa., Aug. 24 (UPI) -- Scranton, Pa., police raided a home in advance of President Barack Obama's visit after the Secret Service said the suspect had threatened violence.

The Secret Service declined to release the suspect's name or the nature of the threats but said the man did not live in Pennsylvania.
