Man arrested for sending white powder to Donald Trump Jr.s NYC apartment
Donald Trump Jr.'s wife Vanessa Trump was hospitalized in New York City after opening a letter containing a suspicious white substance that was later deemed 'non-hazardous.'
A Massachusetts man was arrested on Thursday after a letter with white powder was sent to Donald Trump Jr.'s New York City apartment early last month, federal authorities said.
Daniel Frisiello, of Beverly, was taken into custody just before 8 a.m. while he was heading to work, federal authorities said. Frisiello is expected to appear in federal court in Worcester later in the day. Authorities were able to track down Frisiello by analyzing a "glitter bomb? letter " a prank where envelopes are filled with glitter " sent to Stanford University law professor Michele Dauber. Investigators matched the text font in the "glitter bomb? threat to those seen on the letters of the white-powder envelopes.
"These kinds of hoaxes may not cause physical harm, but they scare the heck out of people," said Andrew Lelling, U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts.
Frisiello is accused of sending a total of five letters filled with white powder. Authorities said he sent them to Trump Jr. and Dauber, as well as the office of Sen. Debbie Stabenow, of Michigan; Nicola Hanna, the interim U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California; and actor Antonio Sabato Jr., who is running for a U.S. House seat in California as a Republican.
