Hours before his arrest, Cesar Sayoc was playing music sets at a Florida strip club and almost no one in there knew of his political views.
“(I) never knew he was affiliated to any party whatsoever. He was a nice guy, he would make jokes, just funny,” Stacy Saccal, general manager at Ultra Gentlemen’s Club in West Palm Beach told CNN affiliate WPTV.
At least four times a week over the last two months, the 56-year-old parked his white Dodge van plastered with stickers supporting President Donald Trump and depicting some of the President’s critics with targets over their images near the club. Sometimes he would work as a DJ and other times as a bouncer.
Sayoc was arrested Friday after federal authorities said he sent 14 pipe bombs through the US mail to prominent Democrats around the country. None of the bombs detonated and no one was injured. He’s facing several federal charges and could receive up to 48 years in prison if convicted.
