FLORIDA – Several media outlets are reporting that a former New York resident, now in Florida, has been taken into custody in relation to the mailing of several suspect devices mailed to politicians and media.
The U. S. Department of Justice announced the apparent arrest via Twitter Friday morning.
“We can confirm one person is in custody. We will hold a press conference at the Department of Justice at 2:30 p.m.,” Sarah Isgur Flores, a Department of Justice Spokesperson tweeted.
Investigators have been led to South Florida, where the man was taken into custody. Media reports he is a white man in his mid-50s, but that has not been confirmed.
