An outspoken supporter of President Donald Trump from South Florida was charged with sending explosive packages to at least a dozen of the president's critics, apparently bringing to a close an attempted bombing spree that has gripped the country just ahead of the midterm elections. They show that Sayoc pleaded guilty and was sentenced to one year of probation.
The defendant faces up to 48 years in prison for the charges, which include illegally mailing explosives and threatening former presidents.
A package addressed to Harris found Friday at a Sacramento mail facility was the 13th device officials said they had linked to Sayoc. "We've had no interactions that would have led us to believe that Mr. Sayoc was responsible for these bad incidents", police said.
Sayoc is expected to appear in court on Monday in Miami.
Police were seen in Plantation, Florida on Friday covering the fan with a tarp and taking it to a secure location.
The arrest happened when a Matthews officer "stopped to help a broken-down vehicle and it turned out to be a stolen vehicle", Ayock said.

He said the country's debt was Rs 6,000 billion in 2008 which ballooned to Rs 30,000 billion in 2018. An IMF team is due to visit Pakistan to open negotiations on November 7.
U.S. media reported Sayoc had once danced as a male stripper, and The New York Daily News quoted an event promoter as saying the suspect would dance at strip clubs and ran a show called "Girls Night Out".
A cousin, Lenny Altieri, used stronger terms to describe Sayoc. He lists that work as including positions as a "promoter, booking agent, and choreographer". He recently worked at the Ultra Gentlemen's Club in West Palm Beach.
Two weeks ago, Sayoc threatened a former Democratic congressional spokeswoman on Twitter after her appearance on Fox News. And we all say this in all sincerity, but the media's constant unfair coverage, deep hostility, and negative attacks, you know that, only serve to drive people apart and to undermine healthy debate. This is a bar.
Friday afternoon, authorities said more devices may still be in transit, and they need people to remain vigilant and report any information to authorities.
FBI Director Christopher Wray said on Friday that he believes law enforcement caught the right guy, but "today's arrest does not mean we are all out of the woods".
Wray said investigators were able to pinpoint Sayoc after finding a fingerprint on an envelope containing a bomb sent to Democratic politician Maxine Waters, and that DNA found on two of the devices was a possible match to a sample previously taken from Sayoc during an earlier arrest in Florida.
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum also released a statement regarding the investigation.
Besides that, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said, his social media posts that traffic in online conspiracy theories, parody accounts and name-calling include some of the same misspellings as were noticed on the 13 packages he was charged with sending. Experts cautioned that it might take a long time before a suspect would be found.
