WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Joseph Schreiber, a suspect in the Fort Pierce Islamic center fire, was arrested within 65 hours after the crime was reported, St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office said at a press conference.

"Under Florida law, Schreiber will be charged with arson and hate crime enhancement will also be applied… [which brings the sentence] to possible 30 years in prison," the Sheriff’s Office stated on Wednesday.

Earlier this week, the authorities noted that Islamic terrorist Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando in June, had attended the Fort Pierce mosque in the past.

The police added that during the investigation, they examined Schreiber's social media account and discovered that he posted multiple anti-Islamic comments.

Mateen pledged allegiance to the Islamic State terror group, which is also known as Daesh and is outlawed in Russia and numerous other countries throughout the world.
