Officials said Friday that more devices could still be in the mail.
Documents released Friday by the Broward County Sheriff's Office show Sayoc reported in May 2015 that more than $40,000 in goods were stolen from his van and an attached trailer, including 11 pieces of Donald Trump-brand clothing valued at $7,150.
Trump earlier this week said it is the news media's job to "set a civil tone".
He even seemed to suggest this morning shortly before Sayoc was arrested (calling into question whether he knew this was about to happen before he sent the tweet), that it was a false flag operation.
"Let this be a lesson to anyone, regardless of their political beliefs, that we will bring the full force of law against anyone who attempts to use threats, intimidation and outright violence to further an agenda".
Wray said investigators had yet to determine whether the bombs were actually "functional", but the devices could be unsafe "if subjected to the right combination of heat or shock or friction".
"Today's arrest does not mean we are all out of the woods", Wray said Friday at a news conference.
Announcing the arrest to a cheering audience at the White House, Trump said, "We must never allow political violence to take root in America - can not let it happen", Trump said.
Authorities have recovered a cell phone, a laptop computer and other electronic devices from this suspect.
Wray declined to say whether the pipe-bomb devices could have detonated, noting that investigators are "still trying to determine whether or not they were functional".
The FBI called them "potentially destructive devices" - so either the bombmaker was good enough to ensure none would go off and never intended them to explode, or they were poorly constructed.
