(NECN: Washington, D.C.) - Aside from the two Boston-area men arrested in FBI raids on Thursday, another man was arrested in South Portland, Maine on immigration charges.

Unlike the two Watertown men taken into custody, Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said the Maine man has no direct ties to Faisal Shahzad, the man accused in the failed Times Square bomb attempt.

"There is an indirect link, and I can't get much more specific than that," Sen. Collins said.  "There is no current operational threat to the people of Maine, but this arrest has been made and there is another individual who is being questioned, as well."
