LOS ANGELES Police have arrested a second airport employee for an alleged role in setting off ice bombs at the Los Angeles International Airport.

Los Angele police say 41-year-old Miguel Angel Iniguez of Inglewood was arrested Friday while working at the airport.

Iniguez was a supervisor for Servisair and responsible for 28-year-old Dicarlo Bennett who was arrested Tuesday night.

A law enforcement official briefed on the investigation who was not authorized to speak publically 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.

Iniguez is being held on $500,000 bail.
