It's this guy.
The Glendale Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are currently trying to figure out who bombed a Glendale home for the third friggin' time.

The bomb -- which the ATF is calling an improvised explosive device -- exploded in the driveway of the house yesterday morning, after it was placed between the residents' cars.

ATF Special Agent Thomas Mangan tells New Times the IED that exploded yesterday consisted of two pipe bombs, although only one of them detonated.

The other pipe bomb remained intact, and was launched across the street, through the window of a vacant house, through two interior walls, and landed in the back of the house, actually protruding from the exterior wall in the backyard, he says.

That sounds scary enough, but similar incidents have happened twice before. The ATF says the house was targeted with bombs in June and July 2011.

No one has been injured in any of the incidents.

Mangan says investigators are still trying to figure out who's targeting the residents, or why someone would target them.

As you can imagine, though, the residents of the home installed a surveillance camera after a couple bombs were left at their place, so you can find some stills below.

The ATF's offering a $5,000 reward in this case.

Mangan says there's been absolutely no information in the case that would link this bomber with whoever made the yellow flashlight bombs that were dropped in Glendale several months ago.

ATF says that appears to be the bomber's white Chevy Suburban in the background.
