Former LAX Workers Sentenced in Dry-Ice Explosions at Airport
Two LAX workers pleaded no contest Friday to charges they faced in connection with dry-ice explosions that caused flight delays and an emergency response at the airport last October.
Dicarlo Bennett, 29, and Miguel Angel Iñiguez, 41, had each been charged with one felony count of possession of a destructive device.
After entering their no contest pleas, they were sentenced to three years of probation and 480 hours of community service, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
Bennett and Iñiguez were employees of Servisair, a company that provides cargo, baggage and de-icing services.
They placed three explosive devices — two of which exploded — near terminals at Los Angeles International Airport in October 2013, accordion to the prosecutor.
Police had said the incidents may have been part of a misguided prank.
