SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A suspicious package addressed to California Senator Kamala Harris was intercepted Friday morning in Sacramento, Senator Harris’s office confirmed to CBS13. The package is similar to 13 others addressed to other elected officials and political figures this week.

The post office is in the 6000 block of 44th Street. Senator Harris’s office confirmed to CBS13 that the package, which was addressed to Sen. Harris, is similar to those addressed to other elected officials who are known to be political opponents of President Donald Trump.

“Our understanding is a trained postal employee identified the package at a Sacramento mail facility and reported it to the authorities,” a statement from Sen. Harris’ office read.

The Sacramento FBI Field Office confirmed they investigated the package. Bomb technicians have since rendered the suspicious package safe.

A heavy law enforcement presence, including FBI, US Postal Inspector, postal police, and the sheriff’s department personnel was visible at the facility throughout the morning. Firefighters from Sacramento Metro Fire Department also responded to the report.

CNN first reported the incident.

As a result of the investigation, some roads in the area of the 6000 block of 44th Street were closed.

Authorities have told the office of Congressman John Garamendi that it’s unclear if the piece of mail is connected to the other packages sent to politicians around the country.

In recent days, authorities have found 13 packages addressed to 10 prominent Democrats and other political leaders. Cesar Sayoc, a 56-year-old Florida resident, was arrested in connection to the case on Friday.

“More than a dozen suspicious packages have been sent through USPS to a media outlet, a Hollywood actor, and at least seven high-ranking current and former political leaders in the Democratic party. This is utterly unacceptable,” AG Jeff Sessions says.

The head of the FBI says the suspect arrested in the mail bombs sent to prominent Democrats was found in part using fingerprint evidence and possible DNA.

FBI Director Christopher Wray said Friday investigators had fingerprints of Florida resident Cesar Sayoc and had possible DNA collected from two explosive devices. Wray says they matched a fingerprint found on one of the packages that had been sent to U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters of California.

The FBI says they’re working in concert with federal, state and local authorities to continue to investigate the suspicious packages.

  5. Dems began violence a yr ago w attempts to kill GOP pols, then attacks while dining/in offices/at home/etc. Maxine, Holder, Soros, kept promoting violence w no one stopping them. How much would GOP take. Finally someone had enough of it n no one was hurt.

  6. Blenda Richter says:

    “…investigators had fingerprints of Florida resident Cesar Sayoc and had possible DNA collected from two explosive devices.” So if his fingerprints and DNA are in the system he’s a felon.

    Hey liberal monkeys, it’s not a white Christian it’s an indian native.

  10. Anti-racists say there is a RACE problem that can only be solved when the third world pours into EVERY White country and “assimilates.”

    What if I said there was a RACE problem that could only be solved if hundreds of millions of non-Blacks were brought into EVERY Black country? How long before people realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem, but the conclusion to the BLACK problem?

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

    Except for Harris…– what a horrible looking bunch!

    Incredibly incompetent bomber. If he were smart, he might have been dangerous. I suspect he has been and will be highly paid by ‘somebody’ for this. Decent Republicans don’t do this kind of stuff.

  13. Roger Edward Harris says:

    How the hell did a van cover in Trump sticker travel up and down the coast and not get vandalized by the mob. The Democrat leaders and the fake news has been calling for violence. Maybe they will tone down their hate,
