A person is in custody in connection with the series of explosive devices mailed to apparent enemies of President Trump, according to the Department of Justice. 

A dozen packages have been found addressed to high-profile figures who've spoken out against Trump, including Hillary Clinton, former President Obama and more. All 12 packages were mailed through the U.S. postal system, sources told ABC News

A press conference will be held Friday at 2:30 p.m. regarding the person taken into custody. Further details were not immediately available.

The person who was taken into custody has been identified as Florida resident Cesar Sayoc Jr., 56, according to several reports. DNA evidence reportedly played a role in his apprehension.

On Friday morning, two more suspicious packages were found addressed to New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, as well as one to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

On Wednesday, the Time Warner Center in New York City, which houses the New York headquarters of CNN, was evacuated after a device, sent to former CIA Director John Brennan, care of CNN, was discovered. The package was later transported through the streets of Manhattan in a special blast-proof truck.
