The FBI released a photo of a person suspected of placing two homemade bombs at the Democratic and Republican national committees’ headquarters in Washington, DC, on Wednesday.

Along with providing the suspect’s photo, the federal agency announced Thursday night it is offering a reward of up to $50,000 for information leading to a conviction in the case.

The homemade explosive devices were found at the headquarters of the political parties as a pro-President Trump mob stormed the Capitol.

The FBI in its release described the devices as “suspected pipe bombs.”

Fox News, citing a senior federal law enforcement agent, reported earlier Thursday that the devices were real.

In the photo released by the FBI, the suspect, wearing a face mask and gloves, can be seen carrying an object.
