Per Rick Leventhal of Fox News, Sayoc lives in Aventura Florida, he is a white male and former New Yorker in his mid-50s who has prior arrests for using the mail to make threats of violence to judges using the mail, so he was known to law enforcement. Apparently, the FBI has been looking at this nutjob for 24 hours.

Several of the packages went through a U.S. postal facility in Opa-locka, which is less than 10 miles from Aventura. Also, Aventura is near the offices of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, which may be the reason her office was used as the return address.  He was arrested by the Broward County Sherriff  at an auto parts store at State Road 7 at SW 6th Street in Plantation, Florida at around 10:30am According to  WFOR in Miami, a “loud explosion” was heard at the time of the arrest, possibly from a flash bang device used by FBI in the course of making the arrest.

Additionally, a law enforcement source told WFOR Cesar Sayoct is 56-years-old and they were led to him through DNA evidence.

A government source told Fox News the stamps are being analyzed by the FBI in Quantico. The source also said the investigation had progressed “significantly” and that the FBI is reaching out to retailers to zero in on where the elements of the bombs were made and where they were sold.

The envelopes and packaging materials were being closely analyzed and likely contain a treasure trove of DNA information. Tiny bits of genetic material – traces of sweat, skin cells, saliva, hair or fingerprints – are typically used as a roadmap to the suspect’s door, investigators and bomb experts say.

The FBI also wrapped a blue tarp over the top of a white van in the parking lot of the auto parts store, to preserve any evidence , before it was put on a flatbed truck and taken to an FBI facility.
