Original report…

According to Fox News, a white man in his 50s who is originally from New York has been arrested in Florida in connection with the prop bombs sent in the mail to prominent Democrats.

The man has been identified as Cesar Sayoc Jr. and it is reported that he has a long criminal record of threats and attacks, especially on various judges.

As Fox News reports:

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

The Department of Justice will hold a press conference at 2:30 p.m. ET.

Federal authorities had been focusing on Florida as the location where the majority of packages originated.

“Some of the packages went through the mail,” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen earlier told Fox News. “They originated, some of them, from Florida. I am confident that this person or people will be brought to justice.”

Miami-Dade police were also part of the investigation.

According to photos of what we are told is the suspect’s van, the thing is covered with GOP and Trump stickers.

At least 11 fake bombs were sent to Democrats such as Maxine Waters, Cory Booker, Joe Biden and others.

The FBI will be releasing more information at a press conference on Friday.
