Travelers to Los Angeles can rest easy, after a harrowing series of bombs exploded in the LAX terminal over the past 3 days. Today, the Weather Channel reported on this bizarre development (see video also).
LOS ANGELES -- A baggage handler has been arrested following a police investigation into two dry ice explosions at Los Angeles International Airport.
Dicarlo Bennett, a 28-year-old employee for the ground handling company Servisair, was booked Tuesday for possession of a destructive device near an aircraft. He is being held on $1 million bail.
Bennett took the dry ice from a plane and placed it in an employee restroom Sunday night and another device that was found on a tarmac outside the international terminal, according to a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation who wasn't authorized to speak publicly.
No one was injured in either incident, although some flights were delayed Sunday.
The FBI and LAPD have both been on the scene, conducting an investigation. A total of 4 bombs were found before the baggage handler was arrested. Terrorism has been ruled out, but Bennett's motives are unclear, and more details will be forthcoming in the days ahead. Speculation that Bennett was disgruntled over an employment dispute has been raised already.
