Federal prosecutors chose to charge Sayoc, a resident of of Aventura, Fla., in New York City in part because evidence that linked him to several of the packages was discovered there.

He faces charges for allegedly mailing more than a dozen explosive devices to prominent Democrats, CNN and critics of Republican President Donald Trump.

Cesar Sayoc is scheduled to appear at 10am before US Magistrate Judge Robert Lehrburger, according to a letter yesterday from the US Department of Justice.

The former stripper and pizza delivery driver was arrested on October 26 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and charged with five federal crimes.

He was arrested last month and charged with interstate transportation of an explosive, illegal mailing of explosives, threats against former presidents and certain other persons, threatening interstate communications and assaulting current and former federal officers.

Sayoc was being transferred from federal custody in Florida and was expected to arrive in NY ahead of a Tuesday court hearing.

Other evidence includes online searches Sayoc did on his laptop and cellphone for addresses and photos of some of his intended targets, which included former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Vice President Joe Biden, California Sen.

None of the bombs exploded before being intercepted and no one was injured. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

In a letter to ABC News Sayoc's mother, Madeline Sayoc, wrote that she had unsuccessfully tried to get him treatment for what she said was long-standing mental illness.
