A CNN correspondent posted an image of the package on Twitter, showing it appeared similar to the other 14.

The Time Warner Center, where CNN's NY operation is located, was evacuated on Wednesday after a suspicious package turned up there.

An additional "suspicious package" was sent to CNN and seized by law enforcement at an Atlanta Post Office Monday; sparking new security concerns that additional devices may be en route after apprehending a lone suspect last week. This meant there has been no evacuation of CNN Center, where it remains business as usual.

A CNN spokesperson confirmed to HuffPost that the package was addressed to the CNN Center in Atlanta.

A suspicious package was found at a post office in Atlanta, Georgia. Authorities have not yet made any formal connections to the other packages. "All mail, at all CNN domestic bureaus, is being screened at off-site facilities as of last Wednesday, so this package would NOT have come directly to the CNN Center, even if it hadn't been intercepted first", CNN President Jeff Zucker wrote in a statement.

If America hoped President Donald Trump would scale back his attacks on his perceived opponents after they started finding in bombs in their mail, we were disappointed. He's due to make his first court appearance on Monday. He was expected to be formally charged on Monday. Sayoc was arrested Friday in Florida after investigators said they identified him through fingerprint and DNA evidence. He is being prosecuted in NY, so his Florida hearing will likely be brief and process-oriented.

Authorities say Sayoc faces more than 50 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
