The Associated Press

A man who supervises runway workers at Los Angeles International Airport has become the second man charged with setting off dry ice bombs there.

LA County prosecutors said in a statement that 41-year-old Miguel Angel Iniguez (in-EE'-gez) of Inglewood was charged Monday with one felony count of possession of a destructive device near an airplane.

Iniguez works for aviation ground services company Servisair. Prosecutors allege he made two dry ice bombs Oct. 13 along with 28-year-old Dicarlo Bennett, who was charged last week. One device went off in an employee restroom. The second, found near the international terminal, did not detonate.

No one was injured.

Iniguez is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday. It's not clear if he has hired an attorney.
