The U.S. Justice Department told reporters today that a man in South Florida is in custody in connection with mailing of pipe bombs to political opponents of Donald Trump.
Senior law enforcement sources have identified the suspect in the investigation as Cesar Sayoc Jr., 56, of Aventura, Florida.
“The arrest was made at an auto parts store in Plantation, Florida... about 10:30 a.m. Friday morning, and a 'loud explosion' was heard at the time of the arrest.”
The suspect was arrested in Plantation, Florida. He has a criminal record, and ties to New York.

News outlets at 8:20AM Pacific time on Friday are airing footage of a white van outside Auto Zone in Plantation, Florida, which appears to have a bunch of right-wing Trump bumper stickers all over it. Law enforcement described it as “right wing paraphernalia.” (see Twitter photos below)
The suspect's political affiliations are not yet confirmed, but this sure appears to be what it appears to be. One can get a pretty good idea from his targets.
