Suspect arrested in Florida in connection with suspicious packages sent to Democrats - 26 Oct 18

Extract: A male suspect was arrested in Florida on Friday morning in connection with the rash of suspicious packages sent to prominent Democrats nationwide, law enforcement sources confirmed to Fox News. A law enforcement source told Fox News that the suspect is a white male in his 50s, a former New Yorker, who lives in Aventura, Florida, who had prior arrests for terroristic threats. Several of the packages went through a U.S. postal facility in Opa-locka, which is less than 10 miles from Aventura.

The Department of Justice will hold a press conference at 2:30 p.m. ET.

This from Fox news apparently identified the suspect or at least the person arrested in connection to the bombing.

Take what you want from the images or what Fox news is reporting.

What we do know that he is one of the most unsuccessful wannabe bombers in recent history (thankfully). One news article (NBC) claims that he said "they would not hurt anyone", but the FBI says they were not hoax bombs, I guess the facts of that will come out in the hearing. I suspect this individual lawyer will use mental illness as a defense and he will be going to a mental institution for quite sometime.
