Justice Department officials revealed that a latent fingerprint found on one package helped them identify their suspect as Cesar Sayoc, 56, of Aventura, Florida.

Early Friday, an 11th package to Cory Booker, a New Jersey senator often touted as a Democratic presidential hope, was intercepted in Florida, the Federal Bureau of Investigation confirmed.

"I can tell you this: we will find the person - persons responsible, and we're going to bring them to justice", Sessions said.

The person was taken into custody in the Miami area, a USA law enforcement official said.

The news of Sayoc's arrest came just after President Trump appeared to endorse the false flag theory being perpetuated by conservative media (which the Federal Bureau of Investigation has now concluded is not the case, and that these were not hoax devices).

Sayoc, a registered Republican, has a "significant" criminal history dating back to the 1990s and connections to the NY area, according to NBC News.

Caravan of migrants break Guatemala border fence, rush Mexico
Bush deployed the National Guard to assist in border security operations in 2006 and President Barack Obama did the same in 2010. In a series of tweets, Trump blamed Democrats, leaders of Central American countries and "existing weak laws" for the influx.

Inside the packages sent to three of the potential targets - former President Barack Obama, former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan and Waters - were a picture of each person with red "X" marks on them, according to the criminal complaint, filed by federal prosecutors in the Southern District of NY.

In video of the scene, a blue tarp is seen being draped over a large white van believed to belong to Sayoc, who was arrested in an auto parts store. Lowy, who represented Sayoc, said he showed no ability at the time to back up his threat with bomb-making expertise. He has been convicted on theft, stolen property and traffic charges and in 2002 on a threat to "throw, place, project or discharge any destructive device".

Investigators have declined to say whether the devices were built to be functional.

"Because, as you know, the media has been extremely unfair to me and to the Republican Party".

Earlier on Friday, Trump complained on Twitter that he was being blamed for the mail bombs.

Since Monday homemade bombs and other suspected explosive devices have been addressed to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Hollywood megastar Robert De Niro and a litany of figures loathed by the United States president's supporters.

Jamal Khashoggi: Saudi crown prince calls reporter's murder a 'heinous crime'
In a speech Tuesday, Erdogan laid out a timeline his government has been working on since the initial investigation. He said the kingdom will continue with reforms and spending on infrastructure.

The Department of Homeland Security has said there are no links to global terrorism. Two of the packages with explosive devices were addressed to the CNN New York bureau. The FBI is doing a nationwide manhunt for whoever is sending the pipe bomb packages, and officials are trying to determine if the sender or senders was trying to sow fear or actually cause physical destruction. A complaint is expected to be filed by the Southern District of NY, meaning the man will face charges in Manhattan.

No one has been physically injured by the explosive devices, which are being considered an act of domestic terrorism.

In New York City, a security guard alerted the NYPD after spotting a package containing a bomb intended for actor Robert De Niro.

The bombs are about 6 inches (15 centimeters) long and packed with powder and broken glass, according to a law enforcement official who viewed X-ray images.

One of the packages was recovered at a South Florida office of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz Schultz (D-Fla.) also were sent packages, as were as liberal activist billionaire George Soros.
