On Thursday, according to federal authorities, the man who allegedly sent a letter containing “mysterious white powder” to Donald Trump Jr.'s apartment was arrested, Fox News reports.

While he was on his way to work, Daniel Frisiello was taken into custody and is expected to appear in court later in the day.

Authorities were able to track him down by comparing text from an envelope sent to a Stanford University law professor.

Frisiello is being accused of sending a total of five letters containing powder to public figures in the U.S.

Vanessa Trump opened one of them and was taken to the hospital after feeling nauseous and coughing. The letter stated, “You are an awful person. This is why people hate you. You are getting what you deserve.”

According to Frisiello's Facebook profile, he is a pro-gun control advocate and appears to be a huge fan of England.

Here are a few screenshots from posts he has shared:
