Massachusetts man charged in Donald Trump Jr. white powder hoax
A Massachusetts man who works at a Catholic Charities child-care center was arrested for allegedly sending white powder in an envelope to Donald Trump Jr. — part of a series of hoax missives sent to prominent people across the country, officials said.
The suspect, 25-year-old Daniel Frisiello, of Beverly, Massachusetts, was arrested this morning after investigators tracked him down through a company that sells a $10 prank known as a “glitter bomb,” a cardboard mailing tube that spills glitter everywhere when opened, according to a criminal complaint.
Frisiello was identified as the suspect when investigators combing Twitter noticed that a glitter bomb was mailed to one of the white powder letter recipients. The company that sent it, shipyourenemiesglitter.com, told investigators Frisiello placed the order and tried to send glitter bombs to members of President Donald Trump’s family, but the company refused to fill the orders “because the names were all associated with President Trump,” the complaint reads.
According to the Daily Caller, he’s a Dem donor:
Daniel Frisiello, the man charged with sending envelopes with white powder to Donald Trump, Jr., donated to Democratic causes and expressed dislike of the president on social media.
Frisiello made one donation of $75 to Act Blue in April 2016, earmarked for the Massachusetts Democratic State Committee, according to records from the Federal Election Commission. The filing indicates that Fisiello was unemployed at the time.
