In a news conference on Friday afternoon, Federal Bureau of Investigation director Christopher Wray said a fingerprint on one of the bubble-lined manila envelopes led them to identify Sayoc, who was already in the criminal justice system because of previous arrests in Florida.
Thomas Fiori, a former federal law enforcement officer, said he saw an undercover police officer in a nearby SUV looking at the AutoZone store with binoculars Friday.
Sayoc was arrested Friday and charged with crimes in connection with the mail bombs.
An earlier package had been sent to former Obama CIA Director John Brennan in care of CNN in NY. "They've got to stop, bring people together".
The FBI confirmed the Booker-directed package in a tweet, saying the new package was "similar in appearance" to others directed at former government officials and others over the past few days that have contained explosive devices.
Utah Track Athlete Lauren McCluskey Killed On Campus
She requested assistance from the University of Utah Police in getting her auto back from the man on October 10. Earlier this month, McCluskey filed a report with university police related to alleged harassment from Rowland.
Sayoc, who seemed to be living out of a van in Aventura, Florida, was taken into custody on a day when four more explosive packages were found, including two intended for USA senators, both Democrats. He had previously worked as a male dancer for several years and more recently as a pizza driver.
Besides that, his social media posts trafficked in online conspiracy theories, anti-Semitism and white supremacy. "Never once did he speak politics". "My feeling was, after one month in office, we didn't need to hear anything more from Trump's mouth - we already knew everything we needed to know about him".
But Scott Meigs, another DJ at the club, had a different experience.
The official said that during an interview with agents, Sayoc denied playing any role in the bombing campaign. Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray declined to talk about the potential political motivations but Sessions did say this: "He may have been a partisan. appears to be partisan, but that will be determined as the case goes forward". Photos showed the van's windows were covered with political stickers.
"We have seen an effort by the media in recent hours to use the sinister actions of one individual to score political points against me and the Republican Party".
The attorney was tapped by Sayoc's family because he has represented Sayoc multiple times in the past, including a 2002 arrest for threatening to blow up Florida Power & Light, saying "it would be worse than September 11".
"In terms of interpreting what he said, that seems, to me, like a straight-up anti-Semitic move", he said.
