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

A law enforcement official briefed on the investigation who wasn't authorized to speak publicly says 28-year-old Dicarlo Bennett, a Servisair employee, was arrested late Tuesday.

The official says Bennett allegedly 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.

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.
