Cat hair and a pack of cigarettes helped lead the FBI to a woman accused of sending a bomb to President Obama, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and the Social Security Administration near Baltimore.

Julia Poff, who is accused of sending the improvised explosive devices, was captured after the FBI found several unusual clues, RT.com reports.

“Cat hair was found under the address label,” the indictment reads. “The cat hair on the Obama package was microscopically consistent with the hair of one of Poff’s cats.”

The FBI also found remains of a cigarette box used to make one of the bomb, and on the pack was a sticker that identified the store where the tobacco was purchased. Bank statements show Poff bought cigarettes at the same store.

Poff is being held pending trial and could be sentenced to life in prison or death.
