Florida Man Arrested In Connection To Pipe Bomb Mailings

Several news outlets are reporting a man has been arrested in connection with the series of pipe bombs sent to Donald Trump’s political foes.

From the Sun-Sentinel:

A man has been arrested in Plantation in connection with the bombs sent to a dozen critics of President Trump, investigators said.

A police source said the federal investigation tracked a suspect to Plantation, near Broward Boulevard and State Road 441. The U.S. Department of Justice said one man was in custody and a press conference will be held at 2:30 p.m. Friday.

FBI agents and other law enforcement officers were examining a white van in a commercial parking lot, covered with pro-Trump stickers. They covered the van with a blue tarp and were preparing to load it on to a truck.

The investigation had shifted to South Florida Thursday and Friday, as the number of bombs reached 12.

The latest bombs discovered were sent to New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and former National Intelligence Director James Clapper, both similar in appearance to pipe bomb devices sent to other prominent Democrats.
