Court records also show that Sayoc was convicted in the 1990s in Broward County on grand theft and stolen property charges and in 2004 on a felony charge of fraudulent refunds and misdemeanor of tampering with physical evidence, according to the wire service.
This frame grab from video provided by WPLG-TV shows Federal Bureau of Investigation agents escorting Cesar Sayoc, in sleeveless shirt, in Miramar, Fla., on Friday, Oct. 26, 2018.
The man suspected of sending 14 pipe bombs to prominent Democrats around the country will be formally charged in court Monday.
Federal agents are still searching for other possible suspects in South Florida who may have helped Cesar Sayoc, the former stripper and self-described entertainment promoter who was arrested at an auto parts store in Plantation Friday. A package to Soros had been recovered two days earlier.
FBI Director Christopher A. Wray said that the bureau was still trying to determine if Sayoc's bombs were "functional" but noted that they contained "energetic material" that could be unsafe.
The envelopes, addressed to Democrats such as Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and intercepted from DE to California, held vital evidence investigators said they used to arrest Sayoc on Friday outside of Miami.
"For example, we've seen an effort by the media to use the sinister actions of one individual to score points against me and the Republican Party", he added, in an apparent reference to this week's pipe bomb suspect, who was a big fan of Trump.
As the packages rolled in, technicians hit a breakthrough: a fingerprint and DNA left on a package sent to Rep. Maxine Waters, a California Democrat and one of the intended pipe bomb recipients, and DNA on a piece of pipe bomb intended for Obama.
Additional packages followed, delivered the next day for Clinton and Obama and after that to the cable network CNN, former Attorney General Eric Holder, former Vice President Joe Biden and other Democratic targets of conservative ire.
Investigators at the Federal Bureau of Investigation lab in Quantico, Va., also identified a possible DNA match from two of the homemade pipe bombs.
A federal criminal complaint spells out his contempt for this week's many bomb targets, noting that Sayoc's van was slathered with images and slogans often found on fringe right-wing social media accounts.
Sayoc was previously known to law enforcement officials and has been arrested almost a dozen times in Florida, including a 2002 arrest for making a bomb threat. It appears that he had been living in the white Dodge van where he was found and arrested Friday morning, the law enforcement official said. "We don't talk politics or religion in a bar, you know?" She says Twitter got back to her within 24 hours and said the tweet did not violate their rules against abusive behavior.
"And they do have a major role to play as far as tone", Trump said.
Authorities said the man was house-sitting for his parents when he noticed some black widow spiders on an outside wall. No-one was injured and the man was the only person at home at the time , United States news outlet ABC13 reported.
The parcel intended for Holder ended up rerouted to the return address printed on all the packages - the Florida office of U.S. Suspicious packages also were sent to former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton .
That package had an incorrect address, so it was redirected to Wasserman Schultz's office in Sunrise, Fla., and recovered there. A DNA sample from a device intended for Obama similarly matched the suspect's DNA, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said.
He said he doesn't know the details of the investigation and called the media's coverage of the events "hysterical". President Tayyip Erdogan added that Turkey had more information about the case than it had shared so far.
