Police Search For Dry Ice Bomb Suspect After 3 More Devices Found At LAX



CBS Los Angeles

Detectives Tuesday continued their efforts to find the suspect wanted for planting dry ice bombs around Los Angeles International Airport.

One dry ice bomb exploded and two plastic bottles containing the dangerous material were found around 8:30 p.m. Monday at the Tom Bradley International Terminal in a restricted area, Los Angeles Police Department Det. Gus Villanueva said.

No one was injured, and no flights were delayed.

Airport police and a bomb squad cleared the items around 9:45 p.m.

On Sunday, a dry ice device exploded inside an employee bathroom at LAX’s Terminal 2. No injuries were reported in that incident.

In both instances, the bombs were left in an area of the airport that require special clearance for access.

“At least they found unexploded ones,” passenger Bing Smith said. “I don’t know frankly what to think about somebody getting to limited access areas that require a badge.”

Authorities said there was no indication that either incident was part of a terrorist act.

The FBI is aiding the LAPD in the investigation.

  1. Back in 1981 I was lugging beef, and it was common (it was a joke) for one of the guys to throw a plastic gallon jug (with a screw-on cap), containing dry-ice and water into the trailer that we were unloading. These things make a lot of noise, and will scare the hell out of you, but nothing more….no damage what-so-ever (except to the container).
    I like how this story states that dry ice is a “dangerous material.”
    While these “bombs” (another joke) are being blamed on striking workers, I, personally, believe that it is the work of a disgruntled TSA Agent. Who else can pass by the cameras, and through the other security devices, without rasing suspicion??? Especially since all passengers are terrorists (in their minds).

    1. “I like how this story states that dry ice is a “dangerous material.”

      Considering how a six year old pointing his finger and saying pow, pow is being touted as dangerous, this could then easily be categorized as a nuclear event by comparison.
