LOS ANGELES - Officials say a second airport employee is in custody for an alleged role in setting off dry ice bombs at Los Angeles International Airport.

Los Angeles police Cmdr. Andrew Smith says a supervisor for the aviation ground services company Servisair was taken into custody by police Friday night

Smith says he can't identify the employee until the person has been booked.

Dicarlo Bennett,. 28, already has been charged with two counts of possessing a destructive device in a public place.

A law enforcement official briefed on the investigation who was not authorized to speak publicly says Bennett was riding in a van with several people, including a supervisor, when he decided to make the dry ice bombs in plastic bottles Sunday night.

One exploded in an employee bathroom and another on the airport's tarmac. A third bottle that didn't detonate was found later.
