Reports are indicating that the FBI has made an arrest in connection to the suspicious packages being sent to current and former government officials.
According to Fox News:
A suspect was arrested in Florida on Friday morning in connection with the rash of suspicious packages sent to prominent Democrats nationwide, a law enforcement source confirmed to Fox News.
Federal authorities had been focusing on Florida as the location where the majority of packages originated.
“Some of the packages went through the mail,” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told Fox News. “They originated, some of them, from Florida. I am confident that this person or people will be brought to justice.”
Several of the packages went through a U.S. postal facility in Opa-locka, Florida. The Miami-Dade County Police Department confirmed Thursday it was helping federal agents who were at the facility as part of the ongoing investigation.
A bomb expert has said that the devices were “Mickey Mouse” and more than likely wouldn’t be able to detonate. The FBI had a treasure trove of evidence to work with in the case according to reports.
