Suspected serial mail bomber identified


The man arrested in connection to the suspected explosive packages has been identified as Cesar Sayoc, 56, of Aventura, Florida. 

Sayoc was taken into custody outside a business in Plantation, Florida. Sayoc has a criminal history and ties to New York. 

Video showed federal agents and police officers examining a white van in the parking lot where he was arrested. The van had several propaganda stickers on the windows. 

A closeup shows pictures of Republican leaders like President Trump.  Below those pictures are stickers of Democratic leaders like Hillary Clinton, some with targets on their faces. 

Three suspicious packages addressed to New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, former National Intelligence Director James Clapper, and Senator Kamala Harris were intercepted Friday.

The discoveries brought to 13 the total number of devices addressed in recent days to Democratic figures, including former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Hillary Clinton.
