LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The 28-year-old LAX employee accused of planting dry ice bombs around the airport faced a judge for the first time Thursday and pleaded not guilty.
Dicarlo Bennett, of Paramount, was charged with two counts of possession of a destructive device in a public place, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office announced.
The Servisair employee was arrested at his home Tuesday by Los Angeles police after he allegedly placed several dry ice bombs near around terminals at LAX.
One device exploded in an employee restroom in Terminal 2 Sunday. A second went off outside the Tom Bradley International Terminal Monday night.
Two additional dry ice bombs were also discovered by authorities before they were detonated.
