UPDATE: Person of Interest Wanted in Lawnside Bomb Scare
The Camden County Prosecutor's Office wants to know if you recognize the individual in these photos. It could be worth $1,000 if you do.
The Camden County Prosecutor's office released surveillance photos Sunday afternoon of a person of interest in a bomb hoax that occurred in the Lawnside municipal building March 7.
The individual seems to be a white man between 5 feet, 10 inches and 6 feet tall, and the images were taken between 7 and 7:15 a.m. March 7.
Around 8 a.m. on that day, a court clerk discovered a package in the elevator of the building. The device—a pair of road flares taped to two pipes—was designed to look like an explosive device. It was found in a bag addressed to Lawnside Mayor Mary Ann Wardlow written on it.
According to a press release from the prosecutor's office, the building was cleared and "the device was rendered safe by a disruption round fired from a robot used by the Camden County Bomb Squad about 11 a.m."
The same release said that the device did not contain explosives and the flares could not have been ignited.
Anyone who can identify this person should contact Camden County Prosecutor's Office Investigator Fred Lang at 609-381-4940.
**UPDATE** March 11, 8:00 p.m.—The Camden County Prosecutor's Office is making available a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual identified in these photographs. Contact Fred Lang with any tips.
