US bomb suspect nabbed by FBI

Cesar Sayoc.

A US bomb suspect was on Friday nabbed by FBI agents.

The suspect, Cesar Sayoc, believed to be a supporter of President Donald Trump, was arrested by the security outfit, after his DNA and a fingerprint were used to identify him.

Sayoc, suspected of sending at least 14 bombs to critics of U.S. President Donald Trump, days ahead of congressional elections.

He has been charged with five federal crimes including threats against former presidents and faces up to 48 years in prison if found guilty, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said.

“We will not tolerate such lawlessness, especially political violence,” he said.

Authorities are still investigating whether other people were involved and did not rule out the possibility of further arrests or more explosive devices in the mail.

FBI agents arrested Sayoc, 56, in Plantation, Florida and also hauled away a white van plastered with pro-Trump stickers, the slogan “CNN SUCKS” and images of Democratic figures with red crosshairs over their faces.
