Zero Hedge – by Tyler Durden

Update2: President Trump announced the apprehension and arrest, and says the suspect will be “prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”

Update: NBC News has identified the suspect as Cesar Sayoc Jr.  

Social media posts reveal that Sayoc attended at least one Trump rally:

Federal authorities arrested a Florida man at approximately 10:30 a.m. Friday in connection with a spate of suspected explosive devices mailed to prominent Democrats and anti-Trump figures over the past week.

According to CBS Miami, the man, 56, was arrested in the Miami area after discovering DNA evidence that led them to a packaging center, when then led them to the suspect – reportedly at a Plantation Auto Zone in Broward County, miles away from the Sunrise, FL office of Congresswoman Debbie Wassermsan-Schultz – the return address on the mailed devices.

The Miami Herald, meanwhile, reports that the suspect is from Aventura and is being questioned by FBI agents along with the joint terrorism task force.

A law enforcement source tells the Miami Herald the arrest was made at an auto parts store in Plantation. Miami Herald news partner CBS4 reports a “loud explosion” was heard at the time of the arrest, possibly from an FBI flash bomb device. –Miami Herald

Department of Justice Director of Public Affairs, Sarah Igsur Flores, confirmed that one person is in custody. A press conference is scheduled for 2:30 pm ET.

President Trump, meanwhile, will address the investigation shortly:

According to security and terrorism expert, David Videcette, the man has previously made “terroristic threats” and was under surveillance for the past 24 hours.

The arrest follows the interception of two more suspicious packages Friday morning, addressed to New Jersey Senator Cory Booker and former National Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper which was also addressed to CNN – bringing the total number of mailings to 13, after New York police say an X-rayed package revealed an object which appeared to be a pipe bomb.

  1. I find it interesting how they have a front and center photo of him at a “Trump rally” where I can identify only about 50 people in attendance, but only one or 2 others are facially recognizable. I also think, if this guy’s for real, he’s a nutcase – who puts all those political stickers on their van? Nobody I want on my fire team.

  2. Wow 100% failure rate on his devices…. The Worst Mass Bomber in History….PUUhhhleeeze

    Oh, and we are supposed to believe that “Anyone” can even approach Soro’s house unmolested by security, let alone place something in his mailbox in this manner and walk away clean as a baby, its just comical….

  3. You can use the letters in his name to spell the word “Accessory”


    I don’t think so
