Officials in Elkton, Maryland - just over the border with Delaware - say the bottle bombs were set off at a Super Wal-Mart store Saturday night. Security cameras captured pictures of the suspects.

The explosion Saturday night happened in a men's rest room as one man was in the facility and a child had just walked out.

Police say the security camera pictures show four suspects walking into the men's room shortly after 9 p.m., and they were later spotted walking around in the store after the explosion. Investigators think at least one of the men was involved in similar incidents at the same store in the past few weeks.

The possession and discharging of a destructive device is a felony and upon conviction the person or persons responsible are facing twenty-five years in jail and a fine not to exceed $250,000.00. Anyone with information is urged to call the State Fire Marshal's Elkton Office at (410) 996-2794 or the Elkton Police Department at (410) 398-4200.

Earlier in March, police in Elkton, Maryland, reported a pair of soda bottle bombs were set off at the store. One of them went off in a parking area. Another went off in the store's toy department. Nobody was hurt.

Parking lot security cameras show five males exiting from a large white two-door vehicle and the device going off.

The same five individuals were later spotted by cameras inside the store in the vicinity where the second device was detonated.

Authorities want help in identifying these individuals.
