Police at LAX made an arrest Tuesday in connection with a pair of small dry ice explosions and are continuing stepped-up patrols at Los Angeles International Airport, The Associated Press reports.

No one was hurt when bottles packed with dry ice exploded in secured areas of the airport Sunday night. An unexploded bottle was found Monday.

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.

Terrorism was ruled out because of the location of the devices and because people weren't targeted. No injuries were reported.

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.
