First look at the suspect in custody:
Several law enforcement officials from various agencies, including the FBI and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, gathered in the parking lot of an Auto Zone in Plantation earlier in the day, where investigators were focused on a white van with pro-Trump political stickers covering the windows.
A man who operates a property management office near the Auto Zone store says Sayoc didn't resist when armed police officers swarmed and arrested him.
Thomas Fiori is a former federal law enforcement officer. He says he saw an undercover police officer in a nearby SUV looking at the store with binoculars Friday.
Fiori says within minutes he heard a small explosion, probably a device police use to distract people. He says 50 officers swarmed the van with their firearms drawn.
Fiori says the Sayoc did not resist and "had that look of, `I'm done, I surrender."'
Authorities could be seen covering the van, believed to belong to Sayoc, with a blue tarp. The van was then placed the back of a flatbed truck and driven to the FBI's South Florida headquarters in Miramar

"We are so proud of our team at the lab for their work in keeping people safe and helping us to find the individual responsible," Wray said.
The FBI has been on the receiving end of a lot of bad PR over the last year thanks to a couple of bad actors, so it's easy to forget that the rank-and-file FBI agents whose names we'll never know are working diligently to keep us safe. Based on what we know thus far, the FBI and other agencies involved in the investigation have done a stellar job.
