Pipe bomb suspect to be transferred

National News

The man accused of mailing bombs to some critics of President Trump will be transferred to New York to face charges there.

A brief detention hearing was held this morning for pipe bomb suspect Vesar Sayoc.

He waived his right to a bond hearing.

The 56-year-old is charged with five federal crimes in connection with more than a dozen mail bombs.

None of the devices detonated and no one was injured.

If convicted, Sayoc could face up to 48 years in prison.
