Suspect Arrested in Connection with Suspicious Packages

A suspect has been arrested in connection with suspicious packages that have been sent to notable Democrats across the country on Friday morning.  The arrest was made in Florida as federal authorities have been focusing on Florida because some of the packages originated from the state.

The FBI stated that each package had a manila envelope and a bubble-wrap interior with potentially destructive devices. Officials have called these devices “Mickey Mouse” bombs because they are meant to be found. They believe the main motive for these packages is fear.

The packing materials are likely to contain some sort of DNA information.
