There were no explosive devices inside the bags, but the incident is being labeled "suspicious," said police Detective Erik Potrafka.

The suspect, described to be about 20 years old, dropped off the bags in the lobby of the store, then left without talking to anyone, Potrafka said.

He was last seen traveling eastbound on North Avenue in what appeared to be a dark colored Toyota Corolla, Potrafka said.

Police on Friday released two surveillance images of the man captured from inside the store and as he was exiting. He was last seen wearing a hooded sweatshirt, a gray and white letterman type jacket and jeans.

No charges have been filed, and the incident is still under investigation, police said.

Authorities are asking anyone who may have information about the incident to contact 630-909-5457.
