Photographs of a suspected serial pipe bomber in Glendale were released by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Phoenix on Thursday morning.

The photos were taken from surveillance video at a home where a pipe bomb exploded for the third time in 15 months.

The pipe bomb was placed between two vehicles in the driveway of the Glendale home near 67th Avenue and Olive just before 1 a.m. Wednesday, according to ATF Special Agent Thomas Mangan.

He said all three bombings were similar. No one was injured in any of the bombings.

An undetonated device was found embedded in the wall of a house across the street and is believed to have been part of the device placed in the driveway, according to Mangan.

The pictures show a man kneeling between the two vehicles in the driveway of the house and then igniting one of the explosive devices before walking back to his white, four-door SUV parked across the street, Mangan said.

The suspect was dressed in white or tan dress slacks, a dark-colored dress belt and a button-down dress shirt.

ATF is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the bombings.

Anyone with information about this bombing is asked to call the Glendale Police Department 24-hour hotline at 623-930-3000.
