Oct 27, 2018, 13:14
A Chippendales spokesman also told TMZ.com they had no idea who Sayoc was before he was identified Friday as the primary suspect in the recent string of explosive devices sent to enemies of President Donald Trump.
DNA, fingerprints and pings from a cell phone tower led authorities to an auto parts store parking lot in south Florida where they arrested a 56-year-old man Friday morning.
The crude pipe bombs were addressed in recent days to former President Barack Obama as well as other high-profile Democrats, including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a former USA attorney general, two Democratic members of Congress, and former Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan.
"These are not hoax devices, " Federal Bureau of Investigation director Chris Wray said. He reprised the phrase "fake news" that he notably refrained from uttering on Wednesday at his previous rally in Wisconsin just hours after a mail bomb was delivered to CNN's studios in NY. But he said they did contain potentially explosive material, adding: "These are not hoax devices". Sayoc did not want to talk and quickly demanded a lawyer, the official said.
Authorities are still investigating whether other people were involved and did not rule out the possibility of further arrests or more explosive devices in the mail.
On Friday, Ritchie wrote: "Hey @Twitter remember when I reported the guy who was making threats towards me after my appearance on @FoxNews and you guys sent back a bs response about how you didn't find it that serious".
Sayoc was convicted in 2014 for grand theft and misdemeanor theft of less than $300, and in 2013 for battery. Federal authorities took Cesar Sayoc into custody on October 26, 2018, and confiscated his van, which appears to be the same one.
Sayoc lived in a white 2002 Dodge Ram van, which was plastered with stickers supporting Trump and criticizing media outlets that included CNN, which was also targeted by mail bombs.
Hours after federal authorities arrested him in Plantation, Florida, his social media posts and extraordinary work history began to offer the first sketch of a man whose rudimentary bombs launched a nationwide manhunt.
Investigators first went to the home of Sayoc's mother in Aventura, but were told he wasn't there, according to a law enforcement official.
A package recovered Friday at a Manhattan postal facility was addressed to Clapper, a CNN contributor.

After the arrest was made, Trump denounced such "terrorizing acts", saying they have no place in the United States. Investigators in California scrutinised a package sent to Democratic senator Kamala Harris, her office said, and one sent to Tom Steyer, a billionaire businessman who has campaigned for months for Mr Trump's impeachment. "Because, as you know, the media has been extremely unfair to me and to the Republican Party".
Lowy said Sayoc may have been attracted to Trump's appeal to outsiders.
Earlier in the day, Trump addressed the matter in a tweet, complaining about the potential effect the pipe bombs could have on the midterms.
