    Los Angeles police on Friday arrested a second airport worker in connection with dry ice bombs that caused emergency responses over two nights at LAX.

    Miguel Angel Iniguez, 41, of Inglewood was arrested while he was working at Los Angeles International Airport, according to a Los Angeles Police Department statement.

    Iniguez worked for Servisair and was responsible for overseeing the other suspect in the case, Dicarlo Bennett, 28, who pleaded not guilty earlier this week, the statement said.

    Detectives were seeking an additional suspect after Bennett reportedly admitted to involvement with two of the three devices discovered.

    No one was injured in the dry ice bomb incidents.

    The devices are made of plastic bottles filled with dry ice. Gasses inside the bottle build up until it explodes.

    Iniguez was booked into the 77th Street Jail Detention Center on suspicion of possession of a destructive device near an aircraft. He was held in lieu of $500,000 bail.
