CAMDEN COUNTY, N.J. -

Investigators on Sunday released images of the suspect they believe is responsible for placing a device meant to look like a pipe bomb in the Lawnside Borough municipal building earlier this week.

The device, which ended up being two flares taped to two pipes filled with screws, prompted an evacuation of the building Thursday morning.

Investigators with the Camden County Prosecutor's Office say the man in the pictures is believed to be the person who placed a bag with the device inside in an elevator with the name of Lawnside Mayor Mary Ann Wardlow written on it.

The suspect is described as a white man, just shy of 6 feet tall.

If you recognize this man, you're asked to call the Camden County Prosecutor's Office at 609-381-4940.
