LOS ANGELES A suspect in the dry ice bottle blasts at Los Angeles International Airport has entered not guilty pleas to two charges of possessing a destructive device in a public place.

Dicarlo Bennett, 28, said little beyond acknowledging his name during a brief hearing Thursday before Judge Keith Schwartz. He works as a baggage handler for an airport service company.

No one was injured in the blasts Sunday that authorities say were done for Bennett's amusement in areas of the airport accessible only to employees.

He is being held on $1 million bail and could face up to six years in prison. Another hearing was set for Oct. 23.

Airport officials changed their policy on how dry ice is discarded from planes as a result of the case.
