One, found in Florida, was addressed to Senator Cory Booker, a New Jersey Democrat; another, discovered in a Manhattan post office, was sent to James R. Clapper Jr., a former director of national intelligence; and a third was intercepted before it reached Senator Kamala Harris, a California Democrat.
Sayoc, a registered Republican, has a lengthy criminal history in Florida dating back to 1991 that includes felony theft, drug and fraud charges, as well as being arrested and accused of threatening to use a bomb, public records show.
A law enforcement source told CBS4 in Miami they were led to Sayoc through DNA evidence. Sayoc reportedly has ties to New York and that he has a criminal history.
The FBI wrapped a blue tarp over the top of a white van in the parking lot, to preserve any evidence, before it was put on a flatbed truck and taken to an FBI facility.
That van is covered in pro-Trump and anti-Hillary Clinton stickers, along with stickers with a negative message about CNN.
