Police Identify Cesar Sayoc as Man Arrested in String of Mail Bombings
A suspect has been identified in a string of mail bombs sent to critics of President Donald Trump.
Senior law enforcement officials identified the suspect as 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Investigators used forensic evidence to trace Sayoc to a mail processing facility in Plantation, and he was arrested at a nearby AutoZone
Video recorded by media outlets showed his white van covered with photos of Trump and other right-wing paraphernalia.
Other stickers showed prominent liberals with bullseyes over them, and a sticker that says, “CNN sucks.”
Sayoc, who is originally from New Jersey, has a lengthy criminal record dating back at least 20 years, including arrests for terroristic threats against judges.
Public records show Sayoc is a registered Republican who appears to have owned a dry cleaning business and a catering business.
@CBSMiami I have some pictures of this van I saw him at a stoplight one day and thought is was very strange. https://t.co/VWUwznJK8k— Mo (@Mo)1540567953.0
