Man who planted fake bomb in Lawnside sought

Posted: March 12, 2013

Authorities are asking for the public's help in identifying a man suspected of placing a device designed to look like a bomb in the Lawnside Municipal Building on Thursday.

Someone put a bag containing a pair of flares taped to two pipes in the Camden County building's elevator between 7 and 7:15 a.m., police said. Mayor Mary Ann Wardlow's name was written on it.

Further investigation determined the device was filled with screws, not explosives, and could not be detonated.

The suspect was described as a white man about 5 feet, 10 inches tall. Anyone with information should contact the Camden County Prosecutor's Office at 609-381-4940. - Diane Mastrull
