Cesar Altieri Sayoc Jr., a 56-year-old man with ties to New York who was living in Florida, was taken into custody by police in Florida on Friday, October 26. Sayoc was taken into custody in connection with the string of suspected package bombs that were shipped to prominent members of the Democratic party and media outlets throughout the past week.
After Sayoc was arrested, his van was taken by law enforcement officials and photos on the internet showed the van was covered in stickers and decals that included pro-Trump and right-wing propaganda, along with other hints into his personal life.
A closer look at the photos and propaganda featured on his van can be seen below.
