Transcript for LAX Employee Arrested for Dry Ice Bombs
Let's get the latest on the dry ice bombs that created so much havoc at l.A.X. The last couple of days. A suspect has been charged with a felony. He works at the airport. And abc's david wright has the story. Reporter: According to the lapd, the suspect now in custody, is 28-year-old dicarlo bennett, a baggage handler. Bennett worked for the ground company serviceair, as a ramp supervisor. The lapd says there were a total of three dry ice bombs. And all three were found in restricted areas, away from passengers. One blew up sunday in an employee bathroom in terminal 2. Another exploded device was found monday on the tarmac. And a third bomb did not detonate. No one was injured in any of these incidents. But some flights were delayed. Bennett's motives are unclear. But officials tell the associated press, he was riding in a van with a supervisor and other co-workers, when he decided to plant one of the dry ice bombs. The a.P. Says those in the van were made aware of the dry ice. But no other arrests have been made. Actually can blow up with as much force and do as much damage to an individual as a pipe bomb. Reporter: Authorities say the bombs were similar to ones you can find all over youtube. 20-ounce soda bottles filled with dry ice. Kids cap them off so the co2 gas has nowhere to go. That huge boom can be dangerous. Which is why california law makes no distinction between dry ice bombs and other improvised explosive devices. The irony here, the dry ice used in these bombs appears to have come from one of the airplanes. Airlines continually use dry ice to keep food fresh in the galley. As for bennett, he's charged with a felony, on $1 million bail, and could face up to six years in prison for each count.
