DNA evidence played a role in the arrest of Cesar Sayoc, Jr., 56, the officials said.

Officials seized his white van, which had pictures of Trump and the presidential seal plastered to a window.

The dramatic development came on the same day that two new suspicious packages were found, one addressed to Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and the other to James Clapper, former director of national intelligence.


According to L2 – a prominent voter database with a national voter file used by Republican political campaigns – Sayoc voted Republican in the 2016 presidential election. Earlier this year, he voted in Florida's 2018 GOP primary.

Sayoc was born in 1962. He lives in Aventura, Florida, a planned suburban community in northeast Miami-Dade County.

Sayoc has a criminal history going back to the 1990s.

President Trump has been briefed on the arrest and will speak momentarily.
