His anonymous calls evacuated the Montco courthouse.

Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman has announced that authorities are looking for the man seen in this photo, alleging that he phoned in two bomb threats last Thursday that resulted in the evacuation of the Montgomery County Courthouse.

The Norristown Police Department got a phone call on Thursday morning at 8:32 a.m. claiming that there were “explosives and bombs” at the courthouse. That call has been traced to a pay phone at the 7-Eleven at Main Street and Montgomery Avenue in West Norriton.

Minutes later, another call came in from a mobile phone, and the unidentified man again reported that there were explosives in the courthouse. Investigators say that call was made from the area of Main Street and Hamilton Street in Norristown.

The courthouse was evacuated, and no explosives were found. Police say the man seen in the below surveillance video is their suspect. Police consider any vehicles seen in the photo or video to be those of potential witnesses. Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 610-278-3368.
