91 Hours: FBI Arrests Bomber Suspect Days After First Incident, Here’s The Latest

On Friday morning, the FBI arrested a man in his 50s from Southern Florida that they believed to be responsible for sending nearly a dozen bombs to prominent political figures across the country.

The FBI tracked the packages back to the U.S. Postal Service mail facility in Florida where several of the packages were processed.

Per Fox News:

A male suspect was arrested in Florida on Friday morning in connection with the rash of suspicious packages sent to prominent Democrats nationwide, law enforcement sources confirmed to Fox News.

Multiple sources identified the suspect to Fox News as Cesar Sayoc of Aventura, Florida.

A separate law enforcement source told Fox News that the suspect is a white male in his 50s, who used to live in New York and had prior arrests for terroristic threats.ย Several of the packages went through a U.S. postal facility in Opa-locka, which is less than 10 miles from Aventura.

Fox News also reports it took the FBI a mere 91 hours to make an arrest after the first bomb was mailed to liberal billionaire George Soros.

During a presser at the White House, speaking at theย Young Black Leadership Summit, President Trump called today “a special day” because of the arrest and condemned the attacks.

Pictures of the suspect’s van were posted to social media and included dozens of pro-Trump window stickers:

Sarah Isgur Flores, Director of Public Affairs at the Department of Justice, confirmed to social media that one man was in custody.

“We can confirm one person is in custody. We will hold a press conference at the Department of Justice at 2:30pm ET,” she said in a tweet.

Nearly a dozen bombs were sent through the mail to former president Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, Democrat Senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, former Vice President Joe Biden, former Attorney General Eric Holder, and some others.

Here’s more, via ABC News:

Everyone who has been sent the suspicious packages so far is a prominent critic of President Trump, and many of them have beenย publicly disparagedย by the president either at campaign rallies or on Twitter.

Many of the packages have the return address for Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz in Florida. Authorities do not believe the congresswoman, who is the former head of the Democratic National Committee, was involved in sending any of the parcels.

The various bubble-wrapped-lined manila envelopes with computer-printed labels and Forever stamps have been sent to the FBI’s lab in Quantico, Virginia, for further analysis. The devices found inside are also being examined for fingerprints and DNA.

All of the devices found inside the parcels went through the U.S. postal service. They were all intercepted before they reached their intended targets, sources told ABC News on Thursday.

Some early reporting identified the man asย 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc, though this name has not been confirmed by the FBI at the time of publication.
