Suspected Mail Bomber Arrested in South Florida

The U.S. Justice Department has arrested a South Florida man in connection with mailing of pipe bombs to political opponents of Donald Trump, including many Black politicians.

The suspect, 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc Jr. of Aventura, Fla., was taken into custody at an auto parts store in Plantation.

Sayoc is no stranger to being arrested. He has a criminal record and ties to New York.

A suspicious van that had a bunch of right-wing Trump bumper stickers all over it was towed away from the scene. Law enforcement described it as “right-wing paraphernalia.”

The suspect’s political affiliations are not yet confirmed, but in total, 12 (and counting) package bombs had been sent to Democrats, several of whom are high-profile Black critics of Donald Trump’s rhetoric and policies.

The pipe bombs were sent to the offices, residences or businesses of former President Barack Obama, actor Robert De Niro, former CIA Director John Brennan, former Attorney General Eric Holder, former President Bill Clinton, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and two each were sent to former Vice President Joe Biden and Congresswoman Maxine Waters of California.
