LOS ANGELES - An airport employee has been arrested in connection with dry ice explosions at Los Angeles International Airport.

Twenty-eight-year-old Dicarlo Bennett, a Servisair employee, was arrested late Tuesday and booked for investigation of a destructive device near an aircraft. He is being held on $1 million bail.

A law enforcement official briefed on the investigation says Bennett allegedly took the dry ice from a plane and placed it in two locations Sunday night.

Police had previously said they didn't believe the explosions were an act of terror but could be the work of a disgruntled employee.

No one was injured in either incident.
