The man believed to be behind the delivery of suspicious mail packages to prominent political figures and Democrat activists has been arrested in Florida.

CNN reports that authorities have arrested a man in connection to the incidents, although his identity has not yet been revealed.

The packages were reportedly similar in appearance and were addressed to former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, George Soros, and other prominent leftist political figures.

After CNN broke the story, both Fox News and NBC corroborated the report. Where and when the individual was arrested remains unknown.
