The National Police has arrested a former functionary of the Vitoria City Council for sending six bomb letters at the end of last year.

The 74-year-old Spaniard was arrested this Wednesday in a Mirando de Ebro street, in Castilla y León.

Police and bomb experts have searched his house.

On Monday, US Pentagon sources were quoted by the New York Times as if to say that a Russian extremist group was behind the bombs at the behest of Russian intelligence.

Wednesday’s arrest contradicts that report with a National Police investigation indicating the man acted alone and had no ties to any group.

The recipients of the letter bomb were the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez and the embassies of the United States and Ukraine in Madrid.

From the beginning, the police focused their investigation on the region of Castilla y León with the letters that arrived from the province of Burgos to a post office in Valladolid, before being sent to their final destinations.

A great clue to the identity of the sender was that he used commemorative stamps from Monte Santa Trega in Pontevedra with a limited issue of only 135,000.

The stamps were only distributed at the main post offices and police reviewed security camera footage to identify the suspect.
