Cesar Alteri Sayoc: What to Know About the Bomb Suspect

Justice Department officials revealed that a latent fingerprint found on one package helped them identify their suspect as Cesar Sayoc, 56, of Aventura, Florida.

The FBI said a package, "similar in appearance to the others" found this week, was addressed to Booker and located in Florida.

Justice Department public affairs director Sarah Isgur Flores confirmed a person was taken into custody Friday.

"We will prosecute them, him, her - whoever it might be - to the fullest extent of the law", said the president.

Speaking to reporters on Friday, the president said he knows the pipe bomb suspect was a supporter, but he bears "no blame" for his actions.

According to state voter registration records, Sayoc is a registered Republican who voted in the 2016 election. The bombs have been sent across the country - from New York, Delaware and Washington, D.C., to Florida and California, where Rep. Maxine Waters was targeted.

Just a couple of hours before today's arrest, in an early Friday morning tweet President Trump referred to the terrorist acts as "this bomb stuff" and inferred that the attacks were a false flag created to slow down Republicans' momentum leading into the midterms.

Authorities have not said whether the van seized in Florida was linked to Sayoc.

In 2002, he was convicted on a threat to "throw, place, project or discharge any destructive device".

The records show eight arrests, including on suspicion of grand theft, battery, fraud, drug possession and probation violations.

A federal law enforcement source said charges would likely be brought by federal prosecutors in Manhattan and Sayoc transferred to New York City.

The FBI considered the package mailed to Brennan, which was addressed care of CNN, a threat to him rather than the news network.

The first of the bombs surfaced on Monday at the Westchester County, New York, home of billionaire Democratic donor George Soros. The return address is that of Florida Democratic Rep. While the FBI's lab is still working to determine if the devices were functional, Wray said, they did contain "energetic material" - meaning the right combination of heat, shock or friction could have set them off.

Fourteen items have been sent in recent days to figures including ex-President Barack Obama and actor Robert de Niro.

"Republicans are doing so well in early voting, and at the polls, and now this "Bomb" stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows - news not talking politics", Trump tweeted.

The arrest comes just hours after two more bomb packages were discovered, one addressed to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and the other to New Jersey Sen.

"There may be other packages in transit now", the Federal Bureau of Investigation director said, noting that "We are not out of the woods yet".

The incidents come less than two weeks before the United States mid-term elections, with politics highly polarised.

The threat came from a Twitter account that has been linked by media reports to Sayoc and features plenty of images that appear to show the suspect, including Sayoc at pro-Trump events.

On Wednesday, the Secret Service announced that they stopped two bombs in the process of being sent to Hillary Clinton and former President Obama.
