Federal prosecutors in NY on Friday secured a 30-count indictment against the man accused of mailing possible package bombs to prominent Democrats and Trump critics across the country, bringing charges that are both more severe and more numerous than those he previously faced. The document said Sayoc mailed 16 improvised explosive devices though the USA mail to victims across the country.

The 16 IEDs all had "approximately six inches of PVC pipe packed with explosive material, a small clock, and wiring" according to prosecutors. The following morning, a string of similar packages were discovered across the country, including one which was found in the mailroom of CNN's midtown headquarters.

The charges in NY federal court are linked to the five people targeted with pipe bombs in the NY area: liberal political donor George Soros, former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, actor Robert de Niro, former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

The first package was discovered at Soros' home on October 23.

Sayoc was ultimately arrested on October 26th in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, thanks to forensic evidence recovered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on 11 of the bombs.

He was arrested a week ago outside a south Florida vehicle parts store in a white van in which he had been living, which was covered with stickers of Mr Trump and images of some of the president's opponents with red crosshairs over their faces. The packages were labeled with the return address of Rep. Sayoc had been arrested outside a South Florida auto parts store.

No one was injured.

DNA, including fingerprints on two envelopes, linked Sayoc to numerous devices, prosecutors said. It was also an assault on a nation that values the rule of law, a free press, and tolerance of differences without rancor or resort to violence. His attorney of record did not immediately respond to a Law&Crime request for comment. He has been held without bail since his capture.

The timing of Sayoc's transfer to NY is uncertain.

Other evidence includes online searches Sayoc did on his laptop and mobile phone for addresses and photos of some of his intended targets, which included former president Barack Obama, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, former vice president Joe Biden, California senator Kamala Harris and New Jersey senator Cory Booker.
