(CBS NEWS) – The suspect arrested in the investigation of bombs sent to prominent Democrats and critics of President Donald Trump has been identified as Cesar Altieri Sayoc, law enforcement sources confirm to CBS News.
DNA evidence on one of the devices played a part in leading investigators to the suspect, a law enforcement source told CBS News’ senior investigative producer Pat Milton.
Sayoc, a 56-year-old south Florida resident, has a criminal history in Broward County, Florida. Arrest records list his place of birth as Brooklyn, New York.
Records show he pleaded guilty to state charges in Florida in 2002 for threatening to “discharge a destructive device.”
