One dry ice explosion occurred and two dry ices bombs were found in a restricted area of LAX Monday night, a day after a similar incident drew a multiagency response, authorities said.
A dry ice device exploded just before 8:30 p.m., and two other unexploded devices were found in the area of Gate 148 at the Tom Bradley International Terminal of Los Angeles International Airport, LAPD Detective Gus Villanueva said.
The suspicious items were reported in a space not accessible to the general public, Los Angeles Airport Police Sgt. Karla Ortiz said.
Likewise, on Sunday, the suspicious item — a 20 oz. bottle filled with dry ice — was in a restricted area, an employee restroom.
A Los Angeles Police Department bomb squad and the city fire department were on scene Monday night, and detectives from the criminal conspiracy section were also on responding, Villanueva said.
There was no “nexus to terrorism” and no reports of injuries, Villanueva added.
Aerial video showed dozens on patrol cars on scene and officers concentrated in an area between two jets next to the Bradley terminal.
