LAX dry ice explosions: 2nd employee arrested
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Police say a second airport employee has been taken into custody in connection to the dry ice explosions at Los Angeles International Airport.
Miguel Angel Iniguez, 41, a supervisor for the aviation ground services company Servisair, was arrested Friday night while working at the airport, according to authorities. His bail was set at $500,000.
Servisair employee Dicarlo Bennett, 28, has been charged with two felony counts of possession of a destructive device in a public place.
A law enforcement official told the Associated Press that Bennett was riding in a van with several people, including a supervisor, when he decided to make the dry ice bombs in plastic bottles Sunday night.
A dry ice bomb in a plastic bottle exploded in an employee restroom at the airport on Sunday, and then another went off outside the Tom Bradley International Terminal Monday. A third bomb was found before it went off. Though no one was hurt, the incident set off a massive security response. The initial concern was that a terrorist may have planted them.
