Florida man charged with five federal crimes for sending IEDs

Cesar Sayoc is charged with five federal crimes for allegedly sending 13 improvised explosive devices (IEDs) to Democratic leaders and those who’ve criticized President Trump. More devices could be out there. Sayoc drove a white van covered with pro-Trump stickers, and pictures of those leaders with crosshairs on them. A fingerprint and DNA cracked the case.
