Baggage Handler Accused of Planting Explosives at LAX

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Police at Los Angeles International Airport are continuing their stepped-up patrols the day after the arrest of a baggage handler in connection with a pair of small explosions.

No one was hurt when bottles packed with dry ice exploded in secured areas of the airport on Sunday and Monday nights.

On Tuesday, police arrested Dicarlo Bennett, a 28-year-old employee for the ground handling company Servisair. He was booked for possession of a destructive device near an aircraft and held on $1 million bail.

Los Angeles Airport Police spokeswoman Belinda Nettles says that the increased patrols will continue at least through Wednesday. The greater police presence includes both public areas at all terminals, as well as on the airfield itself.
